After All have apparently been around for a long time, as their first album was released back in 1995, but I have never heard of them before. This is very fast, precise, Euro-styled Thrash, with a sharp guitar sound and a lot of energy and polish, but not much in the way of distinction. Overall, this reminds me of Paradox quite a bit, only not as good. I do like that they have a melodic singer, as a lot of retro-Thrash bands don't seem to remember that you can have a real singer. There is a lot of complexity here, and that recalls bands like Heathen that are more intellectual, but it does kind of rob the songs of some of their emotional impact and makes them interesting rather than visceral. This is decent, but I think too polished for its own good.
