So I heard this album for the first time today.

1) It's not as good as Infernal Overkill.

2) Schmier's shrieks can be a little laughable sometimes.

3) Mike's riffs can be a little ejaculatory sometimes.

4) It grooves quite nicely, and does so during a time when groove meant a simple but effective backbeat to hold a riff rather than hip-hop tempo emulating "PEOPLE EQVL SHIT" douchebaggery.

5) Curse The Gods fucking owns.

Interestingly enough, when did their top whatever thrash albums of all time, this was the highest ranking Destruction album.
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"
