Cool band name, and no doubt from that and the artwork alone, you've guessed that this is thrash metal. Lots of bands are playing old-school thrash these days, but Surgical Strike belong more to the modern (say 2000 and beyond) school of thrash, with a more technical approach and a more refined sound. It's not as raw and chaotic as one would expect with old-school stuff, but the band nevertheless shows off a lot of speed an energy throughout the entire album; except for a couple of short, melodic passages, this is full-speed-ahead thrash. But after several listens, I can't say there's any song that really sticks out and it's the kind of album that's good when it's on but didn't leave a lasting impression. But that doesn't prevent it from pinning you down like a little bitch while it's on.
