The Contenders: Page 3
Bay Area Thrash from one of the greats. Is anyone doing 80's thrash in the modern day better than these guys? The addition of Hoglan was a great one, whilst Skolnik and Pieterson still deliver big time.
Aside from the low budget production. This record has a quality different from their other records. The guitars are intricate and incisive, and the whole album has a sinister atmosphere all of its own. Standout tracks are The Ritual and the brilliant Bestial Invasion.
Mike delivers one of the best rhythm and lead displays the mid 80's had to offer. Production aside, Destruction's finest.
I lived 'Bestial Invasion', 'Death Trap', and co. Destruction were the business.
Yes, the album that should have sent this mob into the stratosphere, not little clubs. Yes, disaster struck, but this album is timeless.
Ok, it smacks you in the face with 'Seemingly Endless Time', 'Stop', then introduces one of the greatest ballads of metal history in 'Veil of Deception' and I could go on to 'Disturbing The Peace' etc. But this entire album is Death Angel at their most creative and talented time in their career, and to not have a 'Death Angel: Live at Wembley' dvd is a shame. They could have ruled the world back in the day. 9/10.
Yes, another great release. From 'Sepulchral Voice' to this release is quite an achievement.V 1 Comment
Man, there's so much good stuff on this thread. Is Jon's palm muting even human? Where's 'Horror Show? '
I'd put this excellent album 2nd, behind 'Horror Show'. Those two are their best, in my not so humble opinion.
Masterpiece best riffs ever...Malicious intent and violent restitution are awesome too
My first Razor album. I was blown away.
Brilliant album from the Cannucks. Stand out tracks are the title track and cut throat. Stacy Maclaren singing is on form on this album. The only minus is the sound of the snare drum which is a bit flat, but other than that a great record.
Classic, if you love thrash and never heard Spectrum of Death, do yourself a favor!V 2 Comments
Yes, at last someone knows speed from thrash. It's not as good as their sophomore effort, but there's some great stuff on here. AK killing it, again.V 2 Comments
Why is this masterpiece so low? - DejanKalinic
This is a true return of Megadeth. It contains great solos ("Kick The Chair" for an example), great riffs ("The Scorpion" is good example) and awesome energy ("Back In The Day" is just great).
By the time Metallica are thru destroying their immense legacy, and by the time Megadeth are finished building there's, there will be very little to divide the two. I'd take Metallica's first 5 over Megadeth's any day of the week, but I'd take Megadeth's more recent releases over Metallica's any day of the week.
You sort of sense that Mustaine knows that Metallica have been struggling for decades, and the great, though eccentric, man knows that now is his time. Hey, music is his pride and passion, so why wouldn't he strike while the iron's hot?
Top-shelf album, and the trebly production is an improvement over its predecessor. Tracks like 'United by Hatred' and 'Life without Sense' rule. I must put this disc back in the tray. Mike is a beast.
How on Earth can this monster be at 180?
Apologies if this is already here, but if not, why the hell not? This album is epic.
Ah, good one! Thanks for putting this one up. It's obviously a classic. Cheers!

They toured extensively with Metallica during this release, and I think it shows on this riff-fest of an album. 9/10.V 2 Comments
This album, much like Testament's 'Formation of Damnation' brings Kreator into the 21st century, and the solos and songs are outstanding.
And if you own the 'Deluxe', it contains a killer Wacken show dvd with a fair amount of 'Hordes of Chaos' on it. The addition of a classically-trained lead was just another improvement on an already excellent band.V 2 Comments
Perhaps their best, but the production is dreadful. Re-record please.
This and Peace...megadeth s best albums...Gar was a beast...fantastic drummer and Poland by far the best guitarist they ever had
I bought this one because of 'Looking Down The Cross', 'Rattlehead', and 'Mechanix'. Mustaine had a bee in his bonnet, and it shows on this one. It deserves a remake, due to the dreadful production, but that'll never happen due to 'Looking Down The Cross's'' religious subject matter. No matter, take it or leave it.
How is this not in the top 20?V 1 Comment
This didn't even make the top 100? Mary Jane, Hook in Mouth, Set the World Afire, In My Darkest Hour. This album is seriously underrated. Not Megadeth's best work, but it is definitely a high quality album.
Isn't the cover of Anarchy In The UK on this one? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I hate covers on thrash albums. That's not to say this isn't a fine record, because it is, but do what Metallica do with their covers - throw 'em on a different disc, don't flesh out one of your best albums with then.
I agree. It's a top album. I think the production plays a part in its downgrading, but it doesn't bother me. 8/10
