Set The World on Fire was a solid transitional album that paved the way for the even more musically diverse King of The Kill. The technical thrash metal is almost absent here aside from the t/t and some riffing here and there, but the album focuses more on traditional heavy metal, groove, and acoustics, and despite this huge shift in style from their previous albums, it works well. Opener "The Box" is a slow crawling chugger that has a sinister feel and is an album highlight, the t/t reminds us of their thrashy ways with its frantic riffing and catchy chorus, "Hell is a War" is a slow paced, dark tune with heavy riffing and a sudden shift in speed, and "Annihilator" is a groovy tune with a killer riff and solo section. "Speed," "Second to None," and "Fiasco" are more reminiscent of traditional heavy metal with healthy grooves to boot, and "21" is a fun tune full of sex metaphors. "In The Blood" is a solid ballad for their standards, "Catch The Wind" is a nifty instrumental with mellow acoustics, and "Bad Child" is an appropriate if trite album closer. The diversity works and makes for the band's best effort after their first two masterpieces.
