Well, this is better. Thrash Metal is Violence wasn't bad but was a bit too messy and repetitive for its own good. Merciless Jaws From Hell is built upon the same foundation of raw, dirty and fast Thrash, but you can hear an improvement from the get-go, both in songwriting and musicianship and also production-wise. They've cleaned up their act enough that this might appeal to a slightly wider Thrash audience, while not scaring away those who liked the messy approach of the previous album.

The guitars are especially more noticeable and enjoyable on this – riffs and solos just come to life, whereas on the previous album things were a bit too bland. The vocals are still shrieky and more or less decipherable, but the vocalist seems to be more in control of his voice, and the annoying bits are nowhere to be found this time around.

Fast, raw Thrash that destroys everything in its path is the name of the game here, and while Omission do not invent anything with this form of Thrash, they do cater to a crowd that wants something less clean than what we've mostly been getting from the so-called "Thrash revival."
