This CD kicks off on a song that's a little bit too chaotic in the first few seconds for its own good, which made me fear the worst. Some 20 seconds later, oh sweet joy, this started sounding like a mix of mid-80s Metallica and Slayer, with the vocalist alternating between styles that are not without reminding one of Master of Puppets-era Hetfield (I swear during the third track I always expect him to start screaming "Master! Master!") and the more aggressive and "in your face" Slayer-like vocals. The guitars at times also sound like they came out of the Metallica of yesteryear, with aggressive sharp riffs complemented by some good solos. Hell, this is an orgy of good riffs and solos, classic thrash-style. Good stuff. Despite the audible influences, the band doesn't come out as a clone, they have their own thing going here with a few progressive touches - not too much, just enough to add a welcome twist.

I'm not sure the name is appropriate for the style played, when I first saw their name I immediately thought about some whiny gothic band, which obviously Exit to Eternity is NOT. Food for thoughts(?) Anyway, the guys have got something going here, and this should please people who are into classic thrash. Frankly the biggest problem here is the short length of the CD... I want more, damn it! :) I hope some smart label will pick these guys up ASAP so we can enjoy a full-length release.
