3 stars Classic thrash, with a concept!

This is the best of the original Mekong Delta albums. The guitar work is nothing short of spectacular with brilliant playing that reaches a depth few thrash bands ever came close to (Laaz Rockit is a critically underrated thrash band for you thrash fans out there).

The album centers itself around sounding like a modern thrash version of classical music themes. Tracks like Interludium are mysterious and moving with classical lines spread throughout and a real treat not only for fans of metal but fans of classical as well. The first half of the record is better than the 2nd in my opinion, but throughout the technical playing is excellent. This, along with Watchtower's two releases, are key to the early development of progressive metal, specifically progressive thrash. The tone on this album is of note, both the bass and the guitars have some rich tones to them to complement the intensity of certain "classics" sections.

If you liked Metallica but always hoped for something more, I'd suggest looking at this record, as it's some of Mekong Delta's best work and has a certain depth that more famous thrash bands never reached.
