1. Invasion Sector 12
2. Critical Threshold
3. Death Squad
4. Staatsfeind
5. Tarsman of Chor
6. Faded Pictures
7. Iron Force
8. Burial at Sea
9. Phantasmagoria

More neck snapping, frantic, under the radar, grade A German thrash metal. The best thing about this album to me has always been the complex guitar solos, and the tight, rapid drumming. Lots of German high speed riffing here, that doesn't get boring!
I bought this in around 1989 because I liked the cover art (sorta reminded me of the Slayer pic disc, plus members were baring MDC and DRI shirts on the back cover. The bands influence on me can be seen in a band I was in that named ourselves after the title of this album, DeathSquad. I love this one, always have.

  9. thanks guys.

    This is a ripper for sure.
    Sad that the singer is gone....

    These guys released many, many demos from 1984-87, before this great LP.

  15. The cover is outstanding nothing like zombies calling on you to know that you are up to some serious headbanging for a while.
