This album is classic old school metal, really good album, not as good as The Dark album, but still quality baring in mind when it came out, love the bass playing on this album, really drives the album on, first two songs are best, the rest are good-ok, but there's no bad ones.
Just love the organic sounding drums, much better than some of todays over polished nonsense. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again.
