All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
The third album by Boston's Slapshot, 1990's Sudden Death Overtime proudly ignores all the trends that had overtaken hardcore since their 1984 debut: no metal moves by the guitarists, no plodding, weed-infused Black Sabbath-like dirge tempos from the rhythm section, no dorky growling from singer Choke Kelly, just straight-ahead straight-edge.
