Yuuup, it's a good one. The larger lean into Crossover Thrash ala Power Trip has made me enjoy this one more off the rip than their previous record, even though that one was very solid as well. It fell off for me throughout the year though, hopefully this can hold up over a lotta listens. Even though some of the riffs on this thing have been done to death, I'm still not tired of the chugging shown on "Nation of Fear" and "War Remains" so they're definitely doing something right.

RIP Dark Angel guitarist Jim Durkin. Though he's gone from this world now, the wicked thrash material he's made with Dark Angel shall rise in our hearts.

Just over 3 months later, another Dark Angel member has left this world. Lee Rauch, one of a few drummers the band had before the legendary Gene Hoglan. Rauch was also known for contributing to Megadeth's Last Rites demo. RIP
