this is an awsome bad ass band,i consider it a privledgeto have heard them.

From: Erich Heintzel Date: March 16, 2001 at 19:04
Powermad followed the Anthrax formula of having a powerful, melodic singer for heavy speed metal. It worked for some and not others.This album has 3 of the best metal songs ever. "Nice Dreams" is so intense and powerful it is hard to imagine these guys aren't legends because of it. "BNR" and "Plastic Town" display the bands incredible ability and intensity seldom heard in speed metal. All 3 of these songs are hands down some of the best metal ever. Unfortunately other songs are a little weaker.

Powermad shoud be where Metallica is at now. Nice Dreams should be a classic. Kudos to Symphorce for the cover.

Great guitars/drums! I'm not to big on this dudes voice, but over all it's nice to here this music besides all of the new shit out today.

From: Scott Date: December 9, 2004 at 10:58
Very tight thrash band, with great vocals that range from the mid-range thrash yell to some powerful high pitched screams. My favorite cuts are "Slaughterhouse," "Absolute Power" and the absolutely infectious "Nice Dreams." Also, "Plastic Town" and "B.N.R." contain some of the finest technical musicianship of anyone in this genre. I never could understand why this band didn't garner a much large fan base. "Nice Dreams" alone should have made a name for Powermad.

Powermad should have stayed together - they were awesome! I saw them practice at the studio and play live many times. This site brings back many memories.

1990 was the 1st time we heard this shit music. In that time we called them professor of metal where r u guys?

From: Metalownzu Date: March 12, 2005 at 17:21
Im really not too big on this band although i do own Absolute Power. I think Toxik and Realm bury these guys, they do it alot better, but Nice Dreams is a kick ass song.

From: goobutt Date: July 18, 2005 at 23:21
this is the best metal, music I have ever heard. To my ears, there is nothing betters

From: boaphile Date: July 18, 2005 at 23:22
This dude can sing!! Man, what happened to them? I heard they were getting back to gether for a new album

From: Son Of Weiss Date: October 23, 2005 at 12:02
This is a good album that gave us a couple greta songs. Nice Dreams is one of those songs that should be on the list as one of the best metal tunes. I will agree with scott that B.N.R., Nice Dreams, and Plastic Town are the best tunes on the disk. This album was a strong first album and showed that whilke they did have some room to grow, these guys should have been on the up and up. It's too bad they broke up I would love to see what they would be doing today. I love this band and album.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 4, 2007 at 23:30
Good Thrash Metal album, buen trabajo Anthrax & Sacred Reich metelos en una licuadora y te votara esta banda si quieres te tomas un jugo con ellos 8/10.
