For what ever reason, my first review of this album only shows two stars. I DID NOT give this album 2 stars, it definitly gets 5 stars

My friend paid $20 for a dinged up version of Horror Epics, and fortunately for me, I found a mint copy in a miscellaneous record bin, for $10. This, and I haven't heard the bonus tracks, is definitely the best Exploited album I've ever heard. This almost leans to speed metal but at it's heart this is a punk record with some amazingly fitting guitar solos. They really add some bite to these songs. There is sort of an oddball track here, "Dangerous Visions," as it has the female backing vocals of Dee, similarly to "Sexual Favours" by Exploited. It's also my favorite song on the record. Well, it's a toss-up between that and "Don't Forget the Chaos." This record seriously rips. Just listen to the samples of the first five tracks, and you'll get the idea. This was the last great record by the Exploited, and any thing after 1986 just makes Wattie more and more of an idiot, but forget about those dreadful post-'86 records, and GET Horror Epics if you haven't got it!

This is an awfully underrated album !!In my opinion,it's one of the best,second only to ¨Beat The Bastards¨.This somewhat experimental record mixes dark and industrial influences with an
indescriptibly fast paced,pounding and percussive harcore sound.Drums sound like a machine
gun,souped up with sampled loops from a rythm machine,sounding like there were 3 drummers
playing at the same time !! Guitar work is savagely furious,razor edged,a constant aural assault,full of wild solos,mixed in very loud.Bass is fast,hard and precise.Wattie's delivery
OK as usual.The sound here is well ahead its time.Don't expect any resemblance to the 2
first albums.If you want to listen to something very original,open your mind and wallet.

This is the Exploited's classic album. It is irreplaceable for the punk fan. There's no one like Wattie.

This is the Exploited's most experimental album to date. Half the songs are still your basic fast, loud, punk rock thrashers but the other half they experiment alot with tribal drumming, high pitched guitars, groovy bass lines (as in it has a groove), and echoed vocals. Very reminiscent of bands like Joy Division, Public Image Ltd, and Bauhaus. Probably not exactly what most street punks and speed metallers want to hear but so what? Those people are narrow minded and boring anyway. This is an interesting part of the Exploited's discography. And even if you're not down to give their experimental side a shot you're still missing out on great punk anthem like I Hate You and Maggie. "Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, ya c-!" Also, the lyrics are more insightful. Wattie gets deeper into the horrors of economical inequality, starvation, and war than usual. Probably because some of the songs are slower and longer so there's more time. My personal view is that the Exploited were either a) smoking alot more or better pot than usual, b) trying to cash in on post-punk because it was selling better than straight up punk, or c) bored of doing the same old and wanting to experiment. Probably a combination of all 3. Either way, this is a classic and underrated punk album. I really like the Exploited and don't believe any of the rumors or sh- talk about them. Wattie's been goin it at it for over 30 years straight by now and still kickin our butts! This is one of their better albums in my opinion but probably not one of the more popular ones. This one, Death Before Dishonour, and Let's Start A War are the best in my opinion. Punks Not Dead, Troops Of Tomorrow and any of their singles collections or best ofs are probably the most popular and and best ones to start on. If you're into metal its all about The Massacre and Beat The Bastards.

This is something you just have to hear. It is not for everyone, but it is for everyone with any sense!
