KILLER THRASH METAL in the tradition of Forbidden and especially Exodus. Ultimatum has their own sound but what continues to change with each album is their speed, intensity, and the vocals. The vox on this disc vary from song to song. They still retain the snake-like hiss of past albums but add elements of death metal and even some more melodic parts. Of the three cds, this one is my favorite. 'MutalMitlu' is Ultimatum spelled backwards.

The bands best effort, imo. Awesome thrash metal, with plenty of power metal mixed in. You just can't go wrong with Ultimatum!

Another underrated thrash outfit. They are held back by their 'Christian' name tag. This is a shame because the music equals the likes of any band from their genre. Their vocalist often gets compared to Udo and Zetro, but he is quite unique. Perhaps a tad of an acquired taste for some, but even the worst critic will admit he has his own style. I think it works well. 9/10

Yes, folks, if you want to listen to some awesome thrash, you can't go wrong with Ultimatum. 'Mechanics of Perilous Times' is the latest from Ultimatum and it just kicks. 'Temple of the Spirit' is an awesome song (you can find it on BlastBeats Extreme Music Sampler 4). 'Crash Course' is another truly metal song. But the best song is 'Violence & Bloodshed'. The next album will undoubtably be even better than this one.

I love this album, too! Quite possibly their best, this album brings on a few more melodic elements as well as some death/thrash metal elements as well. My only complaint is the drum snare can get on my nerves a bit, as it sounds like a tin can, but that is a very minor weakness. This is their best album as far as songwriting, time changes, musicianship, and power. This album is their most thrashy album as far as speed goes and certainly falls under the catagory of thrash, much more than their o

Just got the Retroactive Records remaster of this CD from RadRockers. The sound is much improved and the bonus tracks are awesome!!!! Now if only Into the Pit were out! Can't wait! Oct. 30th.
