Frankly, I donít understand why we need a rerelease of this album? It might be a classic of the genre but itís not even a rare find. So why make an anniversary edition with ďonlyĒ 2 bonus tracks?
Well, whatever, cosí itís still great to hear the humble beginnings of one of Americaís most underrated acts! Itís not their debut but certainly their debut as a world class band.
Today it sounds a bit dated but back in the day this kind of melodic yet aggressive power surge was enough to ensure MTV exposure. KEEL has certainly earned its pages in the history book of metal!
Personally this is my least favourite KEEL album (Iím a sucker for the polished sound that ensued) and this is reflected in the rating. If you still havenít heard this classic nowís your chance!
