After a long intro, you finally get a glimpse of the thrash that this band plays, but once it gets going, the pace is frenetic and will get your fingers twitching and pulse starting to race.

The second track of the album, "Betrayed", is a wicked track that just gets under your skin every time you listen to it with heaps of pace and melody.

"Under The Gun" is a ripper of a track with the opening riff that then goes into a cool lead with some nice low vocals creeping in to bring it to a boil nicely.

"We Are The League" shows their punk influence and roots of the band as a punk band, which of course, thrash is very closely related.

There are a few quieter moments and introductions that makes it much easier to listen to and gives it a little more flavor, as sometimes thrash tends to lose melody over just trying to smash your head in.

"Out Of Hell" is real rocker of a track and possibly one of my favourite tracks on the album, but this album grows on you more and more each listening.

One of the things I found a bit odd was some of their intros to songs. The first one clocks in at around 1 and a half minutes, while there are a few other spoken word introductions that appear to be more about promoting themselves. Maybe it was also just part of the promo for the release rather than in the proper release. I personally found it quite bizarre, but as I'm not a band member, I don't know their true intentions for this.

Hailing out of Germany, you definitely get the impression that a lot of their countrymen, such as UDO and ACCEPT, have had a rather large influence on this band; also tinges of HELLOWEEN can be heard. It's a great mix and a lot of awesome history with those bands and the whole German Metal scene.<
