    First impressions: about half awesome thrash thrash thrash, but still with far too many bullshit groove fag jump-da-fuk-up tough guy riffs.

    What Lee Altus does in this band instead of staying with the 400 times better HEATHEN remains a mystery to yours truly. :erk:

    What do you mean by "jump-da-fuk-up tough guy riffs"? Hatebreed?

    Erik, since I'm too lazy to look on dc++, can you send me a few songs?

    EDIT: nevermind, I found a copy to grab, just got the first song..

    mediocre riffs so far, but this vocalist is fucking awesome.

    EDIT 2: Ok NOW we're thrashing!

    Vocalist is great, seems like he does his utmost to emulate Zetro to me though.

    He has some Baloff-isms as well though. He's great, totally better than I expected him to be. This first song ain't half bad...now, lets move on to the next tracks...

    Second track marks the first real thrash moments, but then it has a fair share of WTF moments as well, and generally nothing so far grabs me by the throat.

    THERE ARE CERTAINLY NO DYING SEASONS NOR ARROWS OF AGONIES ON HERE! HEATHEN, GET ON IT*


    * IT being RECORDING THE ALBUM AND OBLITERATING THE REST OF THE SO CALLED "COMEBACKS" BY VARIOUS THRASH BANDS

    Ok, this second song is like...Half good/Half Haunted. This is starting to piss me off.

    I'm not surprised, I thought "Tempo of the Damned" was far too fucking full of groove shit as well. It had the title track, Impaler, War is My Shepherd and then a bunch of chugga bullshit.

    Man, that title track was so fucking awesome. This has some great parts as well...eh, I'm only close to the end of track 2, we'll see.

    Honestly, I loved the fuck out of Tempo of the Damned, but I think another album like it would blow–kind of a one-trick pony, that.

    I'm with Erik. MORE HEATHEN YOU FUCKING FUCKERS. *pelts Lee Altus with loose change*

    I'm too lazy to go find it now. Frankly I'm in no hurry either.

    I hope so! I know Heathen recruited another guy to do at least the touring though...
