4.0 excellentTheNotrap | July 30th 11

Overkill's most successful record. Elimination is probably the highlight here. Good album.

Instant classic. One of the greatest thrash albums ever made, and definitely Overkill's most accomplished released.

Bump

4.5 superbFirstStrikeIsDeadly | May 10th 14

Hot damn, this is some good shit. With absolute classics like I Hate, Nothing To Die For, and the ten minute long doomy epic Playing With Spiders/Skullkrusher, Overkill still thrashes away, but also showcases an ability to write sprawling, grand tracks. This is Overkill's magnum opus.

Bump

5.0 classicultimatethrasher | September 1st 13

A true classic in thrash metal. This is probably my favorite overkill album too

One of the finest offerings of Overkills extensive discography and the one that i considered the best until ironbound came out, elimination in particularly sticks out as one of those thrash songs that every metalhead should listen to. The guitar work on this release is some of the best in the genre, the drumming chaotic and Bobby Blitz sounds completely possessed on some of these songs with that signature nasally, high pitched voice of his.

Bump

4.5 superbShachar Sagui | September 30th 12

Overkill's obvious best. One of the best Technichal Thrash records to date.

Bump

4.0 excellentSylentEcho | August 30th 07

Great album that came along as a evolution success of the band. Thrash became technique and newbies became professional musicians, but preserving all the energy before the flame burned out and other generations came deciding they didnīt like the inheritance (as usual).
The feeling that thrash metal had something to say as a serious musical style takes itīs greater steps in records like this, concise and powerful. This album holds the best of that years, and this is timeless if you are a listener without prejudices. Thanks to Overkill!!

Bump

4.5 superbChris Carney | October 8th 06

I completely agree. Kick ass thrash album, second only to Megadeth's Rust In Peace, which is the only album I find deserving of a perfect 5. Why? Well, the riffs on here are savage, Blitz is a better singer than Mustaine, the drums are top notch, but... no thrash band can ever match the prowess of the Mustaine/Friedman dual guitar assault.

Bump

4.5 superbMart0001 | October 8th 06

Superb album. For a thrash album there's enough variety, like the doomish "Playing With Spiders/Skullkursher" and the ballad "The Years of Decay". Together with Metallica's "Ride The Lightning" the best thrash album ever made (in my opinion).
