This was the third long album of AGNOSTIC FRONT and the band further explored the "crossover" direction they had begun on their previous albums, whilst still keeping the songs to the bare minimum duration-wise. Almost wholesale changes in line-up had taken place since the previous album with the rhythm section and second guitar slot all seeing new players. I personally think this is the most important album in the career of the band due its new and modern sound and production, an excellent work in 1987. Despite this "metalization" of the sound the AGNOSTIC FRONT songs continued to be short, direct and fast, very fast. The album has only 26 minutes and the last song "Crucified", was a cover of the american oi! music band Iron Cross, so, just 10 tracks. With the years this album became as a classic in the hardcore / punk history.

Fourth long album of this legendary band in our history. I wanted to reviewed in this net-zine because I think is an high quality work in many aspects but in opposite is quite forgot for the most of the hardcore / punk scene. In fact we can affirm without doubt this is perhaps the Agnostic Front' s album close to crossover, thrash and metal sound in general. But despite this fact, it continue to be a hardcore album: lyrics, attitud, songs, etc. I started discovered HC/punk more or less in 1992 and I remember this album sounded very modern and innvovated. The other great bands from the first 90's were Madball, Sick Of It All and of course... Citizens Arrest.
