There's no doubt that Toronto is one of the more vital and thriving hard music scenes of today, pouring out great bands left and right from all spectrums of rock and metal. Threat Signal hail from just outside Toronto in the grey, industrialized east end of Hamilton, Ontario, which suits their brand of visceral but very memorable metal. This band's success comes from pure determination, a keen sense of songwriting and a persistent desire to advance and achieve. Their brand of technical, grooving metal encompasses the vitality of today's metalcore scene and combines that energy with a bottom-heavy, melodic European thrash appeal that transcends genres. Complex yet catchy songwriting is their trademark, and killer hooks and melodies ride side-by-side with punctual rhythms and blazing guitar work, giving Threat Signal a distinct sound and an impressive edge.

This effort was mixed by Chris "Zuess" Harris,which might be why I hear a change in some of their songs. It almost reminded me of the European sound.
Though Vigilance was a little disappointing I found it better than this. There are only 3 songs that remind of the Threat Signal that put out "Under Reprisal" those being the last three songs.
"Disposition - Death Before Dishonor & Buried Alive"
Until I heard those I thought the whole album was just another in a sound that has been done to death.
They are still solid musicians and you hear good riffs but what caught my ear is nearly gone in this title. It is only on Buried Alive (the last song) that I hear the multiple voices that I heard on "Under Reprisal".
It is all about personal preference...you may pick this up and think I was completely wrong about this album. As for myself I will listen to the last 3 songs a ton of times and put it away. I looked to see who wrote the last three songs but on the insert it just states all songs written by "Threat Signal".
When it is said and done..it is still worth a listen, as I said it is all about personal preference..who knows you might think it is their best, but not for me.
