When this album came out in 84, "WOW", these guys had tallent. One amazing album after another.Tallent throughout the entire band.This band is a must have for all collecters!

From: Rune H Date: January 11, 2002 at 15:50
What can i say, Just check out Seven Seas. The best song from TNT ever

From: SHAG Date: March 14, 2002 at 9:38
WOW!!!! What an album!! This album was just one great album from this AWESOME 80's hard rock unit!! This album shows a fresh, new side of TNT and on this album, they rocked with the best of them!! Although this album doesn't leave scorch marks like Tell No Tales, but it is an excellent choice if your taste buds crave intricate yet driving melodic 80's metal!! Each band member is superbly talented and it shows on this and their other records. If you can find this one, I recommend that you get it!

From: Friday 13th Date: May 23, 2002 at 5:44
One of the best albums by this band, with screaming vocals by Tony this is a must for fans of Yngwie and any style of music in that vain.

From: oldyett Date: June 26, 2002 at 22:43
i had never heard a vocal range this high this clear before this, 'course lotsa guys do this now, absolute awesome guitar work, great melodic metal of the higest order!!!!

Not very known album, in my opinion. But this album is great! Just check out SEVEN SEAS, BREAK THE ICE, and the title track. They're awesome. TNT is very talented band, but not many people got the respect they deserved as musicians. They could've been better if more people listen to the music of TNT. I really respect this band, they're very talented.

"EDDIE" makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up!

I heard it was actually about a dog.

From: Max Date: February 1, 2004 at 1:27
Lost Without Your Love is a fantastic ballad.

From: Metal_Warrior Date: February 1, 2004 at 10:02
I believe its the best TNT album. And the more metal. 1984 was a great year

From: red Date: February 5, 2004 at 0:12
Not a great album, but some great riffs from Ronnie LeTekro. I agree with metal warrior that 1984 was a great year for metal.

From: Mike h Date: May 24, 2004 at 18:47
SEVEN SEAS is a great track!

From: heaven Date: June 15, 2004 at 19:45
I always wonderth who sang "seven seas" and now I know!......one step closer to heavy metal ......heaven."thank your god for the internet"!thank you Tnt, your great.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 18:06
Heavier than I thought it would be, but the songs are not as good as the following releases. Best tracks are "Seven Seas" and the title track. 6/10

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 9:09
Unfortunately this is the only TNT disc I don't really dig. The lyrics are just too bad for me. I do like 'Break the ice' though. Not that good a CD as far as these ears go though.

From: Mark Date: February 5, 2005 at 19:25
A great great album! I'm surprised people pick out Seven Seas and the title track as highlights because the rest rocks harder and reigns in my attention more. Songs such as Tor With The Hammer, Ready to Leave, and Deadly Metal are just incredible!

From: Rocker76 Date: February 21, 2005 at 15:54
IMO the worst song here was "Without Your Love" which is surprising to me because I love the 80s metal power ballads. But that song was lacking something (maybe that edge or a little bit of power behind it.) Other than that track, the rest was awesome 80s metal, with distinctive & effective vocals, and great guitar work. Not as good as TELL NO TALES, but not too far behind.

From: Swriter Date: February 23, 2005 at 17:25
next to TNT's new album, this is my next fav TNT, I love the band's ballads and Lost is fantastic, as well as all the rockers, a must!!!! I am playing all my TNT getting ready for the new band Starbreaker with Tony,Fabrisio Grossi, Magnus Karlson and John Maculuso, should be a huge album!!!

hi-from COSTARICA,de aqui todo cambiaria a hasta hoy en dia y como no es el album que todo el mundo le diria si a T N T con la entrada de TONY HARNELL y MORTY BLACK ,gran disco de sonido escandinavo solo escucha SEVEN SEAS-READY TO LEAVE-la acustica de KLASSIC ROMANCE-la ritmica de LAST SUMMER EVIL y como no la preciosa Y para mi la mejor balada de TNT asi es WITHOUT YOUR LOVE una de los mejores temas de este disco.TOR WITH THE HAMMER y la poderosa voz de TONY HARNELL en BREAK THE ICE y la gran

From: mauricio Date: June 7, 2005 at 13:14
USA,la atronadora DEADLY METAL y su gran cancion titulo de esta joya KNIGHTS OF THE NEW THUNDER con ese poderoso trueno al final del tema ,muy buena tambien la magica guitarra de RONNI LE TEKRO,el DIESEL DALH ala bateria,se me olvida la epica EDDIE con la suave voz de TONY HARNELL genial 10/10 y 10/10 por el mejor grupo noruego T N T

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 12, 2005 at 22:46
Good Melodic Hard album, otro buen trabajo de TNT algo mas duros aca un Hard Melodico a diferencia de los siguientes pero con buenos cortes Seven Seas, Break the Ice, Knights of the Thunder, U.S.A., Eddie otro buen album de tierras escandinavas, buen grupo, pero no de los lideres de las tierras de Thor, ya conocemos cuales son los lideres o no?

From: Thunderstruck Date: August 20, 2006 at 16:03
Killer band but the best tunes here are too short, the most of them is only about 2 minutes & 40 seconds...but the quality is great tho!

From: aTomiK Date: August 14, 2007 at 3:26
Some really great tracks here! Now, where can i get this with that other cover...ain´t it cool or what??!!

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: December 10, 2007 at 22:28
TNT para empezar mi favorito, tiene un cantante con ese tibre de voz impresionante y luego un guitarrista imparable y impredisible, aqui con un toque Melodic Hard Rock algo pesimo para empesar la gran carrera de TNT pero hay que escuchar el Tor With The Hammer tremendo tema junto al "Break The Ice", "U.S.A.", "Knights of the Thunder" bueno es todo un buen disco con su buen toque Melodico y con algo de suspenso en algunos temas. totalmente brillante los TNT

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 14, 2008 at 23:11
Este disco es lo mejor de TNT antes de caer en un territorio mas melodico.Heavy Metal con actitud pero que al mismo tiempo lo hace "catchy" al oido.Nombrar las canciones buenas del disco no vale la pena ya que todo el disco es "FANTASTICO",ni una cancion floja o monotoma se encuentra aqui registrada!!!.Si no tienes nada de TNT y compras este disco de primero pues garantizado esta que te vas a hacer de los otros discos y veras la evolucion de este grupo (para bien o para mal).100/100

From: WookieEnthal Date: July 12, 2009 at 3:18
I remember the first time I heard Seven Seas...I was watching a local video show in 85 or so and the guy introduced the song and it preceded to kick my ass. I must have looked like a Cro-Mag staring at the tv slack-jawed and wide-eyed. I had never heard anything like it and it still holds up today. I don't know if the song Eddie is about Iron Maiden or not but the song Tor With The Hammer sounds just like them, which ain't a bad thing.

From: lithray Date: June 14, 2010 at 1:30
This was one of the highlights 1984. Back in the day getting an import was a big deal, but my Queensreich loving friends said this guys voice was better. Hard to believe they were right.

From: petermexico Date: April 23, 2012 at 17:07
Great album! The first with Tony Harnell, este es el disco que me atrapó y por el cual empecé a ser uno de sus más fieles seguidores, (aún compro todo lo que hagan y en lo que esté involucrado Tony o Ronni), 35 minutos de rock directo y bien ejecutado. Long Live TNT!

From: underworld king Date: February 6, 2014 at 6:55
My introduction to TNT back in 84. A great album!

From: hair metal again Date: July 23, 2016 at 0:06
fantastic release back in 84 for TNT mostly because of Ronnie s guitar work and Tony s sensational vocals!commercial metal at its best ,flawless,energetic and classy all the way!their sound is unique because of Ronnie s fast riffs and i consider this one an essential for the mid 80 shard rock scene
