So, what's a mere 26 years between your esteemed, one-and-only album and your come-back-cum-sophomore follow up to it? Not a thing according to Dream Death. Celtic Frost riffing-aplenty, doom and sludge-smudged punk and heavy driven thrashing, not to mention the gravel choked vocals of Brian Lawrence still feeling like having your face scraped against the road after hurtling off a bike at 80mph. This is how to make a return to music in every possible way.

Finally got around to listening to the whole thing. Very impressed. Joe's staff pick sums up everything I have to say about it

Sounds like a mix of Venom and (old)Celtic Frost. Would these guys have counted as part of the 1st wave black metal back in their original run?

no Even Celtic Frost didn't count as such at the time.
