the fact that no one has reviewed this is proof that sputnik sucks, this album is a LANDMARK and thrice, converge, and opeth would not even exist if not for this album

4.0 excellentFirstStrikeIsDeadly | May 25th 14

Sacred Reich's explosive debut. There's some FAST shit here, like those parts of Rest In Peace, or No Believers. Then there's super fucking crushing shit, like the introductory riff to the greatest song, Death Squad, or the riff at about 2:20 in Violent Solutions. Sacred Reich were fast and heavy as fuck when they first came on the scene. Another cool thing about this album is the lyrics, which are occasionally tinged with social/political commentary. Death Squad examines Reagan-era foreign policy. No Believers is basically a fuck you to religion (The chorus: "The bible is a lie/I defy the lying priest/God don't control my life/I choose my own destiny/Religion's for the weak/Your soul will die forever/Get up off your knees/There is no god in heaven!"), which I guess you could say is kind of like what Slayer got into doing a lot in their later work...only it's a lot more effective here. Administrative Decisions is a slam against the education system. In keeping with this album's status as the band's most brutal work, Phil Rind goes for straight up shouting instead of the tuneful bark he'd employ later on. Not every song is consistent here, with some tracks definitely being much better than others. It's clear that they hadn't really developed much when this released. But it's still an excellent record if you take into account all the awesome tracks like Death Squad, Ignorance, No Believers, and other highlights. Oh, and it's worth getting the remastered edition, which is really loud, but has nifty bonus tracks and improved sound quality.
