I've had this album on heavy rotation for most of the week after I was sent a copy by the band and I have to say it has made my metal week. This is the first album I listen to each day and it just puts you in such a great kickass mood for the day ahead and off you go with a big smile knowing you just had a date with a classic metal album. The whole album is well crafted and goes straight for the kill and holds your attention form the first blasting riff to the last rocking note of the bands cover of L.A. Guns "No Mercy". So for all those new to this band here it is the arrival of sleazy thrash in all it's rifftastic glory with the debut album from Tornado which dropped back in 2011. The band at the time was made up of the core of vocalist Superstar Joey Severance and Michiel Rutten along with three members of the Finnish band Amoral and produced by none other than Peter Tagtgren of Hypocrisy fame, so it goes without saying the production packs quiet a punch with each thrashing riff and blistering lead hitting you with crystal clear clarity right between the eyes. The band themselves play high energy, riff-heavy thrash played with a loose good time attitude and although the lyrics deal with serious social issues they still know when to have a laugh. Never a dull moment and song writhing to boot, you need this band in your life so buy or die!
