US White Metal label with an unusually high percentage of Thrash'n'Speed. Despite their logo indicating otherwise, wikipedia places them in Chicago and later Nashville. Some early vinyl and CD releases also had UK pressings made for the European market. See the Cat# column for details.

I once again made an arbitrary break in my coverage of the label chosen solely from the fact that practically nothing past this point should be of interest to Corroseum readers. Little of the later produce were Metal in any shape or form, and those that were were very much on the 'modern' side of the fence.

Possibly my fave xian Thrash album ...but that doen't necessarily make it a masterpiece considering the selection. By WM standards it's a surprisingly raw & bileful piece of thrash though that I keep coming back to when in the mood for some solid face-punchin' rageings.

Joe Hasselvander on drums lends little to no Pentagram-similarities, but I guess it's not too different from the American(ized) HM that he was doing in Raven at the time. The rough'n'hairy vocals makes them stand out from the effeminate WM crowd and with proper Metal crackers like "Mercenaries Of Injustice", "More Than Conquerors" and "We're Outa' Here" they practically slay the competition.

Objectively speaking, I guess this is a "better" album than the debut, with the fancier production and the progsy/more technical parts and all, but this column is not for objectivity. You like brutal techno-thrash with a Death-edge? Do indeed check it out. Me I don't think I'll have the time to spin it a 2nd time...

This solo-effort from The Crucified-guitarist Greg Minier is a terribly generic piece of mosh-thrash that would probably never have seen the light of day were it not for the fact that labels with a fetish for christian Thrash don't get to pick & choose.
