All Music Guide - Phil Freeman
The sophomore album by the U.K.'s strongest retro-thrash ensemble is definitely a step forward for the already impressive group. They're moving beyond pure '80s worship into a powerful modern/classic metal outfit, now reminiscent of Trivium as much as Metallica, Exodus, and Testament. Indeed, vocalist Matt Drake sounds shockingly like Trivium's Matt Heafy, with his full-throated roar.

But there's also some serious ambition to be found here, as the album's closing track, "Hundred Wrathful Deities," demonstrates.
