Filled with speedy/thrashy metal. This one´s not bad at all, but the magic of their first records (wiped out/all for one/rock till you drop)is gone.7/10

After releasing some commercial duds, thanks to Atlantic Records, Raven signs with Combat Records and returns to their speedy, NWOBHM roots! This was also the first CD without Wacko Hunter behind the drums. New beginnings all around and Raven proved they were still a heavy metal machine. My favorite track is "Into the Jaws of Death".

After a failed major label run, Raven fights for it's life like a wounded animal. Raven claws, bites, and fights dirty to regain their pre-Atlantic energy. Add a little bitterness and resentment, and you've got a powerful new metal sound for the band. Fortunately, it has all of the Raven hallmarks...energy, speed, and those 'impossible-to- replicate' vocals. Unfortunately, this was the last gasp in America until Metal Blade picked up the RAW TRACKS compilation 10 years later.

A good follower of the great previous release "Life's A Bitch" ..."Gimme a Break" & "Stick It" are my faves...some other good rocking moments are tracks # 4,5,7,11 & 12...enjoyable stuff in here but not superior of the aforementioned previous Record.85/100
