I grew up with the Big Four. They were the one that opened up my ears to a whole underground of brilliant thrash metal bands like Holy Terror, Defiance, Testament, Forbidden and a handful or more of cool bands. To this day I still hold that time in my life in highest regards and I still return to the albums of that era with great joy. But I also feel like a child on Christmas whenever I discover a new band that brings out that same kind of exuberance that the early second wave of thrash metal bands did. Critical Fear might have a bit left before they reach the really high peaks but I can still enjoy their thrash metal attempts. This reminds me of all kinds of cool bands that I’ve heard over the years. And for that I like this album but there is also another aspect of me liking it. I simply can’t get enough of the mad attack the band presents. Anders Ekdahl
