A heavy metal masterpiece, probably one of the first “speed metal” albums ever heard… Riot would never had the success they deserved, mostly due to their wrong choices inside the sick and unbearable world of music industry…
Nowadays this stuff may be classified as “hard rock”, but in 1981 it was considered as an utterly extreme sound…
