Still great after all these years. i Always see this record as the bridge fulling the gap between anarcho punk and something thrashier, kinda like ICONS OF FILTH if they were down with trying to get heavier but without diving fully into crossover....almost thrash but not quite. In my ears, bands like ANTI SYSTEM and THE VARUKERS were the best in the game - as much as CRUCIFIX were in the U.S.A, thats certain. ONSLAUGHT for sure took an hear to this before getting down to record "Power From Hell" im backing what i'm saying 200%.
5/5 Timeless Classic!
