Whoa! This CD rocks. Though built around the guitarist, this band is vocally dominated by singer David Taylor. Hard to mention a band of likeness. Music & guitars sound similar to Lizzy Borden, but more agressive & technical. Vocals are AWESOME! Some what towards the style of the band Obsession during the "Scarred For Life" release. This CD is a must have for fans of classic 80's metal...

From: Van Alan Date: November 26, 2001 at 21:21
These guys sound like Lethal, Crimson Glory, and maybe a bit like early EP era Queensryche. This diamond is a heavy metal masterpiece!

From: Shoemaker Date: April 3, 2002 at 18:59
I agree with the two comments before. A very good, intelligent Metalalbum. I can also hear Lethal and Oliver Magnum too.

I was wondering if anybody has the lyrics to this album. I have a copy of this CD and would love to have the lyrics. If someone could Email me them I would be very happy! My email address is edrocks@optonline.net

Awesome cd- of course anything that brings to mind comparisions of Lethal and Crimson Glory is.

From: gener8tr Date: February 5, 2004 at 15:10
Very much in the same vein as the two Obsession CD's (Scarred For Life and Methods of Madness). Incredible vocals and tight / speedy guitars. Eric Singer (KISS) plays all drums.

An amazing display of 80's power metal! This disc is kills! I heard this on a local college station back in 1988 and went out and purchased it a few days later. I have played the crap out of this cd! The Lethal, CG and QR comparisons are totally justified, as they definitely have that agressive, technical sound. Eric Singer's drumming is perfect for this cd. Highlights for me are (New Reign) The Phoenix, Sinister Minister, Kamikaze and Snake Eyes (I love the vocals on this tune!). A must have!
