Raw and aggressive Teutonic thrash is what you get with this band and their debut album. Overall the band does a solid enough job with a fair to decent production, but alas this release came out in a time when there has been a lot of really killer music popping up on a daily basis. The last couple years have been banner years for releases, and while Mortal Peril definitely have a lot of potential and this CD does have its share of really killer tunes, it is tough for this one to stick out among the rest. The vocals do help it out a lot as they are really well done in particular. Now don’t get me wrong as this CD is really not a slouch by any means and when compared on its own it Is definitely worthy of any ‘banger’s collection, but it’s going to be hard pressed to stick out from the crowd at this time. For thrash purists, one would think it merited being on the top of their short list and that it does in spades!
