It's The Worst Metal Album Ever Its Pretty Disappointing Because It Had Potential To Be Good And Well The First Lyrics To The First Track Are "I Would Cut My Legs Off" - christangrant

Extremely disappointing... - Ananya

Their previous album was "Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part II" - a masterpiece and a metal classic, and then this... One just can't understand what happened to this band. - Metal_Treasure

5 No Prayer for the Dying - Iron Maiden

Not even remoteley as bad people as people say - MetalGurja

19 So Far, So Good... So What! - Megadeth

If wasn't for the lame cover of Anarchy in th U.K. I would say this album is perfect. Whoever put this here clearly never heard the album. Set the World Afire, Hook in Mouth and the classic In my Darkest Hour are superb songs and I'd put them in my Top Ten Megadeth Songs. And a big props for the production keeping the album raw as hell, as thrash should be - MetalGurja
