Sound — 9
They sound straight out the 80's, however there more greatly mixed then the bands of old, (kill em' all for example). They have a thrashy sound with some catchy riffs to boot, this may be because thier greater influences include Metallica and Guns N' Roses.
Lyrics — 8
The singer is a in my opinion a very good singer (espeically being 15) however the lyrics for me are far to cliche and at some points make me want to turn the track over to listen to something of great depth and meaning. However this is the account for all the songs on this album with some lyrics being quite enjoyable especially with the music there relating to.
Overall Impression — 9
This is a debut album and therefore there is room for improvement. However it is still a good listen. my favourite songs of this album are Shout, Light from above and shockwave. There is also a cover of Hit The Lights by metallica on there, which is a good listen but I'm not a fan of the solo they've done on that tune. If this album was stolen I would buy it again. A very good debut.
