Pick this up if you like Meshuggah, Fear Factory or any thrash!!!
B. Hovanec
This album is quite distinct from most heavy bands out there--they have a lot of skill and can create a unique sound.
Stefano Stratakis
He throws down lots of great heavy riffs that are fast, melodic, and technical.

This new band just smokes. It has been some time since I was this impressed with a first album. Huge riffs, blazing solos, a singer that can scream, growl and sing convincingly (it's not often that you hear someone that can do all 3 well) and just an overall vibe that I can't get enough of. There's definitely some Meshuggah in here but it doesn't have the twisty, math-metal feel of a Meshuggah album; it just makes for really interesting rhythm parts. Soilwork, Pantera, Fear Factory, etc. can all be found if you're digging for influences. They also have instances where one guitar and the bass will hammer out a stop-time riff with the drummer while the other guitar plays a more typical, pedal point-type riff over the top...if that makes any sense to anyone. Kind of a Lamb of God thing.

But enough with the comparisons. The main thing for me is that I never get bored with any of the songs. This band keeps it moving and doesn't waste your time. Way fun to turn this one up. 4-1/2 stars.

I was surprised when I found that these guys were actually from Canada. They rank pretty high up with melodic metal bands like Soilwork and In Flames, who are from Sweden, and bands like Mnemic, who are from Denmark. Doesn't really matter where they're from, this cd smokes. Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory) brought the best out of them when he produced this album. Fans of Soilwork, Fear Factory, Mnemic, In Flames, and Strapping Young Lad need not waste any time in checking them out.

Let me just say this album rules. I listened to snippets of it at my local record store and waited till i got paid to pick it up. When i did i was blown away. Two things really stand out for me on this record. The production and the lead singer. The production is top notch for a debut ablum. Also the singer is just amazing. He has your typical scream that reminds you of Meshuggah, your high pitched scream that reminds you of Killswitch Engage, and a nice clean voice that reminds me or the Linkin Park scream/sing as well as a normal good singing voice.

The music just adds to the greatness of the album. You can definatly hear the Meshuggah influence but not as technical as them. Think more like A Life Once Lost. Most songs are mid tempo but the faster ones are just awesome. The solos are great when they appear and there are some nice melodic parts that just add awesome new elements to some of the songs. Basically every song stands out for certain reasons and its definatly an album you need to listen to in its entirity cause there are too many good songs to skip over.

Pick this up if you like Meshuggah, Fear Factory or any thrash!!!

This is Threat Signal's 2006 debut album "Under Reprisal". This is one of the best new debut albums I've listened to for quite a while, and it's already one of the best albums of 2006 thus far. I bought this album over the weekend, and I was immediately blown away. In a time when heavy music is being dominated by metalcore, it's just so good and refreshing to hear a new band that possess such skill and talent like Threat Signal do. From powerful screams, great melodic/clean singing, to driving syncopated guitar riffs, harmonious leads, ripping solos, to bodyslamming drums, to dynamic musical passages, catchy memorable hooks, "Under Reprisal" definately has everything. Various influences ranging from Soilwork, Meshuggah, Pantera, Fear Factory, Mnemic, Strapping Young Lad, and among others are all present throughout this album as well. Jon Howard is an amazing vocalist who has various styles of vocals, something that As I Lay Dying's vocalist doesn't have. Brutal midrange screams/yells that yet remain clear and understandable, melodic/clean singing that packs alot of punch and emotion, and vicious high throat piercing screams that will make your blood run cold. They also somewhat echo Pantera singer Phil Anselmo at times too. Kyle McKnight is an awesome lead guitarist. His leads and solos on here are absolutely skillful, passionate, and jaw dropping. Rich Howard is an awesome rhythm guitarist as well. He throws down lots of great heavy riffs that are fast, melodic, and technical. On here you also got good bass lines from Marco Bressette that follow Kyle and Rich's twin guitar assault with ease, and you have that awesome slamming double bass drumming from George Parfitt. The opening track "Rational Eyes" is pure bliss.Read more ›

Sometimes you just have to pick up an album or a book and take a second look at it, this is such an album, the cover art grabbed my eyes and I had to see if the lyrics and music would be such a feast to the senses. This debut album exceeds all expectations.

Joh Howard produces an amazing range of vocals for a Metal album, the most incredible is his counter points on As I Destruct , here he sings counterpoint to each line, and you would swear you were listening to two vocalists.

The powerful guitar work of Kyle McKnight and Rich Howard draw you in and keep you entrapped as Jon Howards vocals coil around you like a Boa constricting you tighter and tighter. The music is intense, powerful and a stunning example of extreme metal.

It's hard to believe but they even have an anti-violence song called One Last Breath, where they are critical of violence in society and how it will affect us all.

All the song's are written by Kyle McKnigt, Jon Howard and occasionally with Rich Howard. The lyrics are to some extent what you would anticipate for a metal album.

The sound is reminiscent of Disturbed or even early Venom, yet even though it sounds familiar it does have it's own unique undertones and over all it does set itself aside as a new sound in a genre that is typically overly anticipatable. The acoustical ending to Counterbalance reminds one of Creed or Nickleback on their softer pieces.

All in all I would have to say that this album is something new and intriguing in a genre that has become stale. This album will not disappoint any metal head in your circle of friends. So give it a try.
