A real Ed Repka? No, this artwork is created by Marco Hasmann..., o.k., but they could have fooled me. An Italian band and this is their second album as far as I know. Inspired by the Bay Area bands and then especially Exodus if you ask me. "Land of Cunning" immediately underlines that and then especially their 'Fabulous Disaster' era. The first notes of "Another Way" sound like "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and that makes Metallica the other band they have listened to for certain.

Everything is executed well and if you are not looking for something new, but just want to enjoy a fine portion of Bay Area thrash, then I don't see any troubles. Well, nothing more to add , I keep it short but true!
