The opening intro "XDM" sets the mood for what follows ...you can hear the army's of The Green and Black marching ."Armorist" - just like that this song hits you right in the face .. and you are hooked ....great opening delivering that familiar style which makes your bones rattle . "Down To The Bone" good song with a very catchy chorus and Bobby's maniacal laugh at the very end ...priceless . "PIG" one of my personal favorites on the album ..Crushing riffs ...You can feel their Punk roots , great lyrics and above all Bobby " Blitz" Ellsworth keeps convincing you ...I'm a Pig ...PIG...PIG..PIG "Bitter Pill " probably the heaviest song on the album . You can hear some resemblance with their earlier work .. "Where there's a Smoke" this is haw thrash metal supposed to be done ...fast,heavy and yet melodic , one of their best . The bass part in the intro of "Freedom Rings" will melt your face ... and take you to the darkest alley's of New Jersey "Another Day to Die " absolutely love the lyrics to this song . Really interesting track little bit different then the rest of the album. Another highlight on this album is "King Of The Rat Bastards " ...it's Punk meats Thrash meets awesomeness situation . " It's All Yours" good groovy track . And Finally the closing track " In The Name " ..absolute Overkill anthem alike "In Union We stand " , "Bastard Nation " the perfect ending for this offering of sheer metal and energy !!The production of the album is bar none ,pure perfection ...but we never expected anything else from the Green and Black !! Overall this is album you must have in your collection. if you consider your self a Thrash Metal fan this album is a must !!!!
