We all know Demolition Hammer's crushing and full-speed ahead thrash metal motif on the "Epidemic Of Violence" and "Tortured Existence" albums. Without Vinny Haze behind the kit, one could only wonder how the next album was going to sound like. Good news for everyone else, Alex Marquez (Solstice, Malevolent Creation, Disincarnate) sat behind the kit. The result? A groove metal aka "metalcore"album, mostly mid-tempo, which truly shocked the people at the time who expected something heavier and faster than "Epidemic Of Violence". Even lyrics are not metal topis but rather hardcore topics (social issues, ecology, politics, etc.). You can hear the trademark Demolition Hammer vocals (fuckin' love Steve Reynolds' voice) and the groovy chops of Malevolent Creation, minus the speed, plus the atmosphere. At time this is their last album dated 1994 and despite the group disbanded in 1995, they returned in 2016 with the original line-up.
