This is just a real blast to spin. It's all here for the discerning long time Metal Head like me. Solid performances and execution all around, with the B/T trademarks in full effect. This isn't your Blast Death Metal with a million time changes and overt technical noodling. What we have here is straight ahead songwriting and killer head banging material throughout. Everything is mixed perfectly. You can hear Jo Bench rumbling away right up there in the mix as the rhythms keep chugging right along with thick guitar chunk over the top. I just love the sound the guitars have on this. This album came out ten years ago. Not their best, but I don't think there's a Bolt Thrower album I don't like. This is the best since 1994's ...For Victory. Not as good as Warmaster, Realms of Chaos or The IVth Crusade, but it holds it's own. A good place to start nonetheless. The album opener, At First Light, sets the tone and keeps you on the edge of your fox hole, fight or flight mode kicking into high gear. Bow before the war machine!
