When The Storm Comes Down incorporates more groove into their lively thrash formula without falling flat, and while lacking the sheer majesty of No Place For Disgrace or the vicious riffing of Doomsday For The Deceiver, there's a plethora of killer guitarwork, basswork, impressive drumming, and K.A's signature vocals to be found here. "The Master Sleeps" is a great opener and displays the much more professional production job compared to the wonderful No Place For Disgrace. The drums are heavy in the mix and are pleasant in tone, the bass lines are thick, the guitar riffs and tone are sharper and have more clarity. the album sound great just from that alone, and there's great tunes here. "Burned Device" is atmospheric, "Deviation" is a short, to-the-point riff fest with memorable lyrics, "October Thorns" is moody and bass-heavy, and "Suffer The Masses" is the most noteworthy tune here with its massive riff, groovy drumming, and huge chorus. An underrated yet excellent album from the band and one of the best displays of groove and thrash.
