4.5 superbResident Metalhead Piranha | March 29th 17

Doomsday For The Deceiver may not be the band's very greatest album, which followed right after this one, but this is their pinnacle to concise, vicious riffing and my god are these riffs good. "Hammerhead" leads into memorable basslines by Jason Newstead and then come the riffs and every other kickass component of the song. "Iron Tears" brings more riffs to the table, and they're even better than the first. "Desecrator" has the album's best riffs and most frantic tempo and is home to some of their greatest solos ever recorded. A true highlight for the group. After this infamous three-song riff trio and the short but excellent riff-y "Fade To Black," the music gets longer and more progressive in nature showing their knack for diverse songwriting. A.K's vocals are already in top form, the basswork is a genre highlight, the drumming is frantic, and of course, the spiraling guitarwork alone is enough to stack this album up with some of the best output in the genre. A true classic.

3.5 greatFernando Alves STAFF | December 28th 11

Great US thrash. My favourite songs here are Hammerhead, Iron Tears and Metal Shock.

5.0 classicJesusV4 | July 13th 10

The most unappreciated thrash album, and one of the most unappreciated metal albums, this is where Metallica stole Jason Newsted from. Also, the vocalist puts Rob Halford's screams to shame!
