This album is one of the heaviest thrash albums I've ever heard -and I've listened to a lot of thrash in my time! This album will rip your head off, tear your speakers out and destroy whatever is in range of its decibel-age.

First the tone: the guitar tone is deadly! Ultra-heavy crunch, classic soloing and great arrangements (look we're not talking Rush, Watchtower or Coroner) but musically this album is miles ahead of most thrash records. The bass is a bit buried though there are a few (few) standout moments but again its there for the cushioning and pulse.

The drums... where do I begin?! They demolish -absolutely in your face demolition (pun intended)! Vinny Daze was a double bass beast -there are no prog-metal fills or fancy time signatures, per se. He just plows thru the music, almost like he's leading it -a lead drummer! He beats his kit to death but he is still musical (?) for the style of music we're talking about. This is thrash drumming at its finest, period. (Lars really should listen to this record, hehehe)

Now to the creme dela creme: the vocals... Man, I've listened to thrash in many of its forms (more melodic, technical, hardcore, punk) and these are some of the most venomous vocals I've ever heard! It sounds like he drank gasoline or Everclear before each take! You gotta hear'em!

Look, this album ain't for wussies, wimps or mall-core "I'm into whatever is broooootal at the moment" people... If you like metal-core, death-core or any of that crap -this isn't for you. You won't appreciate the absolute aggression, brutality and pure, unadulterated heaviness this album produces. This album, being thrash metal, puts to shame a lot of death metal albums.

This isn't for you kiddies out there, with your sensitive little ears -who are used to overly-compressed, digital music. This is for us adults, who saw and heard the beginnings of speed & thrash metal and can appreciate this absolute masterpiece! Posers, stay away -purists, rejoice!

In a world where good music is far and few in between, THIS album destroys, crushes, and humbles anyother poser band that thinks they are "badass". Friends, we have ourselves a masterpiece just based on the brutality of this album. The lyrics are brutal. In fact brutal isn't even a good enough word to desrcibe the lyrics. The lead singer swallowed nails for breakfast. The bass guitar adds more brutality to the drums. The guitars are blazing with heavy riffs and face melting solos. Vinny Daze, the man on the drums is one of the most brutal drummers I've ever heard. But beware, this album takes on The Big Four, all of the German bands, and most of the death metal bands out during this time, it takes on all the poser metal bands out today, and defeats all of them. Epidemic of Violence is a dose of metal we all need to hear.

Very good music. This is some of the most devastating thrash I have ever heard. The vocals sound insanely angry and venomous and the guitars sound like chainsaws shredding your skins alive and the drums power away. Crazy stuff. The only problem was the cd packaging wasn't the best the cd glass container was kind of busted on the inside but the music and lyrics sheet full of complex well thought out songs are excellent.

This album is thrash and death bliss! I wish I could hear it on original vinyl pressing if the digital remaster sounds this good.

Demoliton Hammer. Damn Shame these guys never got the respect they deserved. They came around very late in the thrash scene when death metal was all the rage. these guys were like a death/thrash crossover. they made most death metal bands sound like school children. This is one of the most intense thrash albums ever unleashed. Steve Reynolds sounds like a rabid dog. LIke Mille Petrozza on Dust and full of hate. Vinny Daze(RIP) hits the drums so hard im surprised they dont break. Scott Columbus has nothing on this guy. The songs are insanely awesome and so friggin heavy. this might be one of the greatest lost gems ever released in metal. the lyrics are intelligently written. Skull Fracturing NIghtmare, Epidemic of Violence and Aborticide are highlights. if you dont own this yet, dont consider yourself a metal fan. you have been warned!!!

This album has turned me into a huge fan of this band. Literally my favorite band, this album is in your face brutality, towers over most bands yet very often overlooked.

I wont go into to much detail because its pointless. If you appreciate good metal and thrash you will love this album. Demolition Hammer is one of my favorite bands and this is definately there best album. Enough stuff.

90s thrash with a taste of the 80s, the singer even remembers obituary, and players do well. "Demolishing" songs with technical competence and a lot of rage. Approved, since I've been a thrash maniac for 2 decades.
