Staff review by
Artillery, the famous Danish Thrash Metal band is finally back with a new original album, ten years after their last release B.A.C.K! Maybe that you don't know the band really well, because after all they never got the popularity of European Thrash bands like Kreator for example but their first three releases Fear Of Tomorrow (1985), Terror Squad (1987) and By Inheritance (1990) are all considered as really good Thrash releases. B.A.C.K was so-so but what about this new one then? Perfect, if you like really melodic Thrash, but if you're looking for angry violent music, then perhaps look elsewhere. I'm quite sure that When Death Comes will open a lot of debates between true fans of classic Bay Area Thrash and other Thrash listeners. All I can say at least, is that this release is good...for its genre...

One of their strongest albums to date in my opinion. Everything here sounds very tight and solid, and the songs each have a rhythmically nice structure. The vocals sound pretty sweet, and even sound more refined than on the band's first couple of albums.

I enjoyed this album a lot, the playing is tight and the vocalist was great; shame he left after one more album. The new vocalist is just not as good, for me at least.

Huge disappointment. For me By Inheritance is one of the greatest metal albums ever made, so naturally I was waiting for similar melodic bliss from this highly acclaimed album, but it turned out to be just your very basic and straightforward thrash metal with tight performance and great production quality.
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
