|This is the third album from these New Mexico thrash monsters, and without a doubt their best so far.There are two verey noticeable improvements on this CD that anyone who has listened to Ultimatum in the past will pick up on, being the production and the severe aggressiveness of the playing and the songs themselves. The playing is top notch, bringing back the glory days of bands like Overkill and Exodus, and it is eas y to har that each member of the band put their all into the songwriting and

|KILLER THRASH METAL in the tradition of Forbidden and especially Exodus. Ultimatum has their own sound but what continues to change with each album is their speed, intensity, and the vocals. The vox on this disc vary from song to song. They still retain the snake-like hiss of past albums but add elements of death metal and even some more melodic parts. Of the three cds, this one is my favorite. "Burn" is a Vengeance Rising cover. Fans of Overkill and Exodus, check these guys out.

|This disc is a killer! Few thrashers out there today can still deliver the goods like Ultimatum can. The twin guitar attack is simply one of the best in the genre today, and the concussive force of the drums will crack your neck like a whip. Top off this mixture with the well written lyrics, and fierce vocals, and you're in for an intense ride. No poseurs here, this is one for the truly hard! Like the last song says...Is that violent enough for ya?

|I agree with everything said so far. This is an AWESOME display of thrash metal the way its meant to be! Shredding and in your face! Nuff' said!

| Killer thrash. A must have for any fans of bands like Exodus, Overkill and so on. If you like thrash you'd better snag a copy!!!!!!

|There are literally NO bands that still practice this style of music without throwing in the "nu-" aspects of today's music scene! If you are a fan of the Bay Area sound, a la Testament, and the vocal style of Exodus, Overkill, and a hint of Metal Church, then Ultimatum is for you!!! This album, along with its 2 predecessors "Puppet OF Destruction" and "World Of Sin" are examples of what used to be awesome about thrash metal, and the way the genre can STILL be played!!! Rock on Scott and Co!

|Excellent Power Thrash. This cd is a MUST HAVE!

|One excelent thrash album indeed. They have really perfected their sound, and delivered their best album so far. I have high hopes for further releases by them.

|I have 3 of their efforts and honestly believe they are one of the best metal bands to ever be a band. No kidding, I should explain that I am a metal disk jockey and have received and or played everything at one point over the last 10 years. What a great band and a very well kept secret. I would love to see this band dominate if ever given financial tour support from a great label. Yes they are a Christian band butI am not a born again Christian, I just love better than average metal music and f

|This is a great CD of a band who has stayed true to their roots from the beginning. Thrash is alive an well thanks to Ultimatum and while so many bands try to keep thrash going and end up sounding stale and stagnant Ult. does a KILLER job of brining the old style music up to date. Guitar riffs that shred phenominal drumming and bass work for a backbone and Overkill-esq vocals all combine to bring forth a frenzy that must be heard. Not to mention; Vengenace Rising cover tune RULES Burn Satan BURN

|Great Thrash metal, great song writing, great production, but where did that singer come from? Oh well, the vocals mixed into the rest makes for a fantastic CD. Keep it up guys!

|ese trujillo tiene algo que ver cn el nuevo bajista de metallica?

|Great metal album with a unique singer who can growl, scream and sing. Surprisingly these guys are a Christian band. They are certainly unique in that area too! One of the best thrash albums in the last 5 years along with bands like Exodus, Death Angel and Sodom.

|I should also not that my copy is on Gutter Records and distributed by Massacre Records and was released in 2001. Is there any difference between my copy and the 2000 Self-released CD?
||Date: November 19, 2004 at 11:31|
|No, there is no difference between the Germany release and the U.S. release other than the artwork on the CD itself. The songs, mastering, cover, etc. are all exactly the same.

|my copy is on Gutter Records too. mine is autographed as well!!!

|One of the unsung heros of heavy metal. The vocalist sounds like a mixture of Udo, Zetro and a troll. Quite unique. Heavy riffs! Screamin' solos! This CD rules! If you like thrash, get it!!!

|Another underrated thrash outfit. They are held back by their "Christian" name tag. This is a shame because the music equals the likes of any band from their genre. Their vocalist often gets compared to Udo and Zetro, but he is quite unique. Perhaps a tad of an acquired taste for some, but even the worst critic will admit he has his own style. I think it works well. 9/10

|Yes, folks, if you want to listen to some awesome thrash, you can't go wrong with Ultimatum. "Mechanics of Perilous Times" is the latest from Ultimatum and it just kicks. "Temple of the Spirit" is an awesome song (you can find it on BlastBeats Extreme Music Sampler 4). "Crash Course" is another truly metal song. But the best song is "Violence & Bloodshed". The next album will undoubtably be even better than this one.
