Rating: 9 This album is one of the most outstanding and underrated Thrash metal albums of the 80's, recommended to every single thrasher out there who wants a piece of nice fucking metal!

The original album sounds great, the 1991 demos are just as amazing as the other songs, and the couple of new songs are also really good, listen to this one now!!!

  Well, NWN supposedly has some old Wild Rags LPs in stock right now, including this one. Gonna attempt to buy as soon as I get money. A forgotten classic if I ever saw one.

Rating: 9 I'd have never known of this band if somebody hadn't mentioned it in the shoutbox. It's a real shame albums like this go overlooked by everyone. Hell, this should be put along classic debuts like "Alice In Hell" or "The Legacy". Even the demo songs are killer. It also motivates me to go further into searching for hidden gems like this one.
