5.0 out of 5 stars A slice of history that holds its own June 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Albums like this have changed people's lives.

The Crucified created a brand of thrash metal that easily holds more than its own against their contemporaries like Slayer and Anthrax. The Crucified's sound is a great mix of punk rock roots, and heavy metal which leads to excellently written songs that use minimal guitar soloing, carefully placed double kick and drum fill, and a classic voice that fits the style well. The diverse sound could share a stage with Gorilla Biscuits, Anthrax, or Strife and Snapcase. Upon revisiting this album, it is clear that the songwriting and especially guitar playing are far ahead of their time.

Where it changes lives is in its place of history. It cannot be overstated how much this album influenced music, especially the way people listen to and create Christian music. The album only lacks the two songs that came after it, which are featured on the complete collection. It would have been a nice bonus to include them here. If you buy this album, seek them out elsewhere such as in digital distribution. If only this band would have caught on more, we could have heard albums to come after it.

Listening to this will make you feel something. I was transported back to Club Post Nuclear in Laguna Beach, stage diving and running in circles while the band played on. People decided to change the way they understood the world and live their day to day lives because of bands and albums like this. Again, it cannot be overstated just how important of an album this is.

It must be noted that the remixing here is to be especially commended, as the old mix hid much of Mark's voice and had a very flat feel. The remix remedies any problems and makes this more than listenable. We should be grateful to tooth and nail records for giving The Crucified's music its proper due. If you are a fan of thrash metal, get this album. It will not let you down.

This is the most amazing hardcore/metal album ever recorded.

I wish somebody would reissue it so it wasn't so expensive.
