Unmelodious and disjointed. In a nutshell, this album and this band suck. There's a reason why this band never made it and have been forgotten since 1989...they're no bloody good!!!

The best overkill album by far this is Like pop thrash metal every song is so catchy but heavy and brutal, One of the top 10 thrash albums of all time, judge for yourself.

Hey me...Powersurge is one of there best songs. It aint your type of music so go play with Motha Trucka and groove to Manowar junk!

From: Zze Date: October 16, 2003 at 22:29
this album sounds actually much like Manowar sometimes ( check out in union we stand ). First 2 Overkill albums where more Power Metal sounding, while they would become Thrashier on the next 3 ones. This album is excellent, but the production is sub par

From: theultimatum1 Date: October 20, 2004 at 14:52
one of the best thrash albums ever recorded!!! It's just so damn heavy and delivered with an almost punk rock attitude! WE DONT CARE WHAT YOUR THINK...F**K YOU!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 1, 2013 at 19:04
This album rocks good!!!...probably one of the finest thrash releases of late 80's..."Deny The Cross","Wrecking Crew","Use Your Head","In Union We Stand" & "Electro-Violence" are in my book right away .85/100
