    Recently, Blitz let everyone know that they had signed with Nuclear Blast for their next records and I though it was a smart move. I'm a huge Kill fan but their last albums since Bloodletting have been very inconsistent and I expected more of the same with this record. Fortunately, the band has really kicked up the tempos on this one and this is easily their best album with this lineup. A couple of fillers but the rest are solid. Highlights include the hellacious title track with a wide range of dynamics, the Diamondheadesque Bring Me The Night and opener The Green and The Black. If you are fan, you'll dig this record, no doubt:headbang::headbang:

    Immortalis didn't get much playing time in my player, it was quickly crowded out by others. But from the little I've listened to Ironbound, it's going to be sticking around quite a while longer.

    Man, you're really gonna dig this, I just got the thumbs up from the label to download it and have been listening to it most of the afternoon. I hope to get an interview with Blitz as I did for the Wacken DVD. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

    Looking forward to hearing it, although Horrorscope is the only one of their albums that I really really like...

    Really? Feel The Fire and Taking Over are gems. BTW the new cd owns best stuff since Horrorscope.
