These guys were the ultimate thrash act back in the day & the metal world has missed them.  As for Omega Wave, well...I'm not in love with this album, but it's a respectable effort given the long hiatus. There are shades of Twisted Into Form and even more Green. Despite how much I totally dig those two albums, there's something not quite right happening here. Some of the melodic ideas fall flat and tend to wander. Russ is a little screamier here than I'm used to and even though screaming is fine by me at times, it's not exactly what I expect from him. On the upside, the band are tight and ultra-heavy, the production is clear and the musicianship is as always, right on the money. This is not a bad album but I'd put it at #4, just ahead of Distortion.
