This is a Thrash band from Ohio that doesn't invent anything but their music is good enough to be worth a look. The style is pretty old school, inspired by the likes of mid-80s Slayer to some extent, though this here is a bit too clean for its own good – some of the material here would kick more ass if it were more raw and a bit heavier though this is still nothing to sneeze at. There's a lot of catchiness here coupled with some evil-sounding passages that seem taken right out of the early Slayer's book.
The vocals have that mid-80s "evil-but-clean" style used by some less commercial Thrash bands. There are some pretty cool catchy riffs on here that just beg for you to join in with the air guitar – nothing particularly flashy, just fun. That cover art doesn't look like much at quick glance but is actually pretty cool. If you're looking for old school Thrash with a modern production, this is worth checking out.
