Already bought the album, not going to buy it again for one track. Nice gimmick though.

I like it too. I really like Havok's style, even if the cover isn't as "good" as the original.

Trying to find anything wrong with this record and I can't! A true face melting scorcher! Definitely will make my year end top list. Their material is strong enough to not even need a Slayer cover. One of the better new thrash bands I've heard. This f***ers going in my player in the Exploder and its staying there for a while! Good stuff!

Musically more polished, maybe too polished, but there's no competing with Araya's vocals.

def a HUGE improvement from Burn... Every track on this record is way more focussed and composed perfectly.
@R Tenney.. I still can't find anything wrong with it either!
Some review I read I think on Blabbermouth said "If this is the band's Ride The Lightning, then I can't wait for there Master of Puppets!" Well said.
