I first reviewed this 'in another place' back in June last year, when self confessed thrash band Heretic named their main influences as Slayer, Pantera, Napalm Death and Nile.
I said at the time that none of these come through on this five track demo which had a muddy production, which may contributed to the old fashioned New Wave of British Heavy Metal sound they were purveying. In fact, having listened to Kreator a lot recently, I would suggest that they are Heretics spiritual ancestors.
I stand by my opinion of the time which highlighted the first two songs, "Zero Tolerance" and "Killing Time", with the latter being particularly rifftastic. "Sins Of The Flesh" still reminds of Metal Church but I didn't think the other songs lived up to the potential shown.
They still need to find a decent engineer and studio, but there's no reason they shouldn't keep on trying.
