Have seen this CD go from anywhere between $10 to $25 on eBay. It's long out of print and hard to find. Only 2000 CD copies were ever printed. Favorite tracks: "Symphonic Extremeties", "Darkest Void" and "Blink."

"Blink" is worth the price of the album. That song shreds like few metal songs I've ever heard!!

the singer sounds like the David Wayne of Metal Church. actually the music here sounds a bit similar to Metal Church as well walking the fence between classic metal and trash metal.

Wish I only paid $10. I paid $80 in Ebay and it was worth every penny. This is real metal! Ultimatum rule! I read on the band's board that Blink will be re-recorded on their next CD.

This CD was Ultimatum's first full-blown album. And it does just that . . it will blow you away. Considering how far they've come, it really shows how great they were to begin with. If you can get this album, do so. You won't be disappointed.

this album was actually 2 demos put together back to back, and that surprised me because this sounds like a straight up full length album, its that good. This album came out during a time when riffy crunchy guitar metal had all but disappeared, but Ultimatum set out to recapture the old school heavy metal genre again. I like this album more each time i hear it.

Recently remastered and re-issued on Retroactive Records with 3 bonus tracks. Available on,,,, etc.

Not a big fan of thrash but I recently got the Retroactive reissue, and was totally blown away. Fantastic metal album with tons of attitude, and a considerable amount of musical talent. Also very memorable songs. I am hooked.

I picked up the retroactive version as well. A good album. Mixes traditional heavy metal and thrash. Megaton, Blink, Symphonic Extremities and Darkest Void are my favorites. The live version of Blink with Maiden's Wrathchild is a nice bonus. My favorites are still Puppet of Destruction and the new one, Into the Pit. Still, this Cd is a good start for one of christian metal's best.

THE best album I've heard this month, Everybody in this band commands their instruments with authority. Straight thrash for Jesus christ with no trendy strings attached. 9/10
