Debut album from Danish band ALOOP formed in 2000. The music is hard hitting Thrash with both clean and rougher vocals. The production is very good and ALOOP fires off some great HEAVY riffs.

The only down point is in my opinion, that nothing REALLY stands out. Don’t get me wrong... this is NOT a crap album. Maybe I’m a bit spoiled… yes, I think I am! Every single time I listen to an album I somehow expect a killer release… this is not a killer release but “only” quite good!

Even after numerous listens I still find this album “only” quite good. We get Head banging-breaks and razor-sharp riffing but somehow it doesn’t seem to be enough. However I’m sure that ALOOP will have a spot on the Metal map soon enough. They’re not doing anything spectacular or groundbreaking, but any Slayer or Pantera fan should check this Danish band, ALOOP, out.

Recommended track: “Breath of the Self-righteous”.
