Guest review by
When I put this CD into my stereo I had to increase some volume, because the quality of the record wasn't similar to new CD's. Despite that I like the sounds of this album: You can hear the drums and guitars, but there is also a bass on the background. Singing is well-know Destruction's style and quality. When you look at the back cover you could get the image that you would be holding a CD of some glam rock band, but fortunately the front cover draws you back to the reality.

Truly excellent album, and for me one of the band's best earlier era albums. "Sign of fear" in my opinion is one of the band's best songs ever.

Most overrated band even in 80's they sucked, not talking about now

Lots of noise and some nice riffs here and there but really nothing special. Just because they are raw and play thrash doesn't make them legendary. Regular well performed thrash here. I like the intro in "Sign Of Fear".

"In my life I never asked, for anybody's assistance." Damn it you should have asked people on how to mix and produce a proper album.

"I live my boring life, And no one takes notice of me." This line summarizes what this album is all about.

The end of this album marks your release from agony.
You are not metal enough until you visit Kenya. The cradle of mankind, where man learnt first to work with stones and first enjoyed the sounds produced by banging stones which later influenced metal in all its sounds and genres.
