4 stars 1. Piece of Time (9/10) 2. Unholy War (8/10) 3. Room With A View (7.5/10) 4. On They Slay (8.5/10) 5. Beyond (7.5/10) 6. I Deny (10/10) 7. Why Bother (7.5/10) 8. Life (8.5/10) 9. No Truth (8.5/10)

Atheist's debut album definitely foreshadowed the heavily complex future that they are knwon for. This one features a lot of that style, but in more of a thrash vein. This is an extreme thrash treat of course, however more repetitive and less experimental than their future works. There's no doubt that Atheist in this form (especially with extraordinary bassist Roger Patterson who died before the next album) is killer. It's a complex angry thrash odyssey. Anyone unfamiliar to this type of music may not make it through entirely but someone who does will relish this album's existence.

Reviewer's tilt: 8.5/10

Overall score: 8.4 or 4 stars
