This album's great from the first listen, and it gets better and better with every play. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a record start to finish this much, there isn't a single song I want to skip when listening front to back.
Great album, after a year of anticipation. I'd say it delivered and then some. It will be a miracle if another record snags AOTY from it. Been blasting it all day since I received my copy earlier. Arising is definitely a highlight. If you love old school heavy and thrash metal there is absolutely no way you could hate that song.
New Uncle Acid is also amazing, turns what they started with Blood Lust and makes a flawless record out of it.
