I don’t know if I would classify this as a new album or not, because only four of the six tracks on this are studio recordings (the other two are live cuts) and the whole thing is pretty short - even if you include the live material. Like previous outings, this CD has a lot of raw Bay Area Thrash influenced riffs mixed in with the Bathory-esque stuff and the songs are short and to the point. You don’t get any 10-minute epic tracks or long keyboard intros/interludes from Abigail. These guys just come in, beat the shit out of you and then leave. If there’s one thing I found “wrong” with this CD, it’s the abruptness of the whole thing. You get a fast and furious ass kicking and by the time you realize what hit you, it’s over! There’s just enough to get you banging your head but not enough for you to get whiplash. I sure hope this is a precursor to the next full-length Abigail album because this has me interested in hearing what’s next.
