With this record they become very melodic, melodic thrash metal. Long songs, the album is sure very influenced by Metallica's "And Justice For All". I love the raw later ones too, but this melodic one kicks absolutely ass for me. Same quality like their other stuff, only in very melodic style. I would not say it's underrated, but sure better than most people think...

Probably my favourite Onslaught -- easily my favourite when it comes to vocals; Steve Grimmett's voice was a great addition to this music. While I think the songs go on a bit too long, the songwriting manages to keep me relatively interested for most of the album. The brilliant AC/DC cover could be named as the best moment of this album and the other two songs I'm rather fond of are "Welcome To Dying" and "Powerplay".

Heathen's Victims of Deception > Onslaught's In Search Of Sanity > Metallica's Justice for All
