Many fans were upset to here that The Crown was calling it quits, me included. It's not easy to say goodbye to such a good band when there are plenty of crappy ones releasing album after album. Such is life I guess but take heart people because Johan Lindstrand is back with a new band and he sounds pissed.
The new band with the damn long name is certainly a worthy addition to the thrash metal scene. There will of course be inevitable comparisons with both bands and with Johan not straying to far from what he is used to doing that will invite the comparisons even more. The album is a pretty straight forward thrash metal album but there are a few hints of death thrown in for good measure. Excellent riffs throughout with some of the stand out tracks being Killing Machine, Behind The Church and the killer So Grim So True So Real. There are a couple of tracks that could be seen as filler and oddly enough only about half the songs have guitar solos. These are pretty minor complaints however and if that is all I can bitch about it must be a pretty good disc.
I can't say they have filled the hole that was left by the end of The Crown but this is certainly a step in the right direction. Recommended
