I've always liked Defiance even though this band is longer together. Beyond Recognition is simply a great classic thrash album that never got the recognition it deserved. Fitting title then, huh? Anyway... if you like bands such as Testament and Forbidden... then you should find this quite appealing to your metal ear. For those die-hard fanatics, Steev Esquivel is now lead vocalist of the blistering metal band known as Skinlab. Check them out as well. Long Live Metal, Brethrens!!!

Awful. I don't care for thrash metal, and this certainly didn't change my mind. A waste of 50 cents.

Desslar, If you'd like to sell your copy give me a shout at metallicakc@aol.com

It's amazing just how many good thrash bands there were in the early 90s. It's a shame that good metal like this was crushed by crap force fed people by the likes of MTV and other corporate pop pushers. Roadracer certainly had their share of killer thrash bands. Believer, Acrophet, Realm, Atrophy among others. Add Defiance to the list. Brutal riffs, technical songwriting, odd time signatures, screaming solos, Metallica inspired down picking & mosh beats all without sacrificing melody and hook.

1992 is the limit for a not radical 80's thrash metal fan. This is THE BEST album of this year. Was the best production for a Defiance album ever. Really cool!

Heathen were better, I mean as of now are better. Laaz Rockit -know your enemy cool old thrash

Woderfull! I think it was my first album of thrash metal... It's great if that was the best album of the year!

Esquivel' doesn't cut it fronting "Exodus".My suggestion to Gary Holt would be to iron out things with Steve Souza' and get him back in the band.However, "Exodus" bandwise still could blow "Megadork" off the stage. ----
