Review

Rarely seen piece of Techno Thrash featuring Tommie Agrippa who later appeared in the HEXENHAUS line-up but the difference is just that DAMIEN's material is ways more bearable than HEXENHAUS ever was. Well produced (means in a underground way) and very powerful stuff that also combines a few Bay Area influences but it's mainly the vocals that with their high pitched parts make it outstanding and remarkable, especially the extraordinary tracks "Death is part of the process" or the superior double bass drum driven "Knights of the realm", a Speed Metal hammer that's ripping your ears off! Buy or die if you like technical Thrash, alone "Knights of the realm" is worth the 5 E I once got it for, but you should expect a "little" higher price nowadays. But it's worth all that believe me. Simply a classic!
