Guest review by
Uncertain Future is one of my favorite technical thrash albums of the first wave, with sharply changing riffs, key signatures, syncopated drumming, and some real unpredictability in their song structures.

These overlooked Seattle-based thrashers remind me of quite an array of bands. On the first three songs (and pretty much throughout the whole album), the band that comes to mind the most is the early Testament. The raw production on this album is similar to the one on New World Order. Forced Entry also sometimes add those clean passages with melodic soloing on top akin to that on Testament's "Eerie Inhabitants." Besides, vocal delivery most often resembles Chuck Billy's gruff voice and his style of dragging out the end of the line. In other instances, one can hear some groovier parts à la Prong and later era Coroner or the fun, upbeat riffage of Anthrax (for instance, a catchy riff in the middle of "Foreign Policy").

Good album. Three-piece thrash metal band out of Seattle. I saw these guys back in '89 with Coroner. Thrash fans will like this!

Some interesting ideas here, but as whole I don't think any of these songs are really good. The album has good musicianship, riffs are mostly good too, but the progressive elements have rather detrimental effect to the songs, than add something interesting to them.
