First off, vocalist on this cd is not Luke Easter. Luke didnt join until after the Pyscho Surgery cd. Vocals are by Guy Ritter(who blows Luke Easter off the map)..sorry Luke but its true. Great guitar/drum work by this band! Blows many secular(non-christian bands) away!!

Simply a brilliant album! One of my favorites of all time by any band. Musically the band combines many styles of metal, but most would label this CD as speed metal. Guy's vocals are fantastic; from the low to the high-pitched, falsetto vocals. Do yourself a favor and make sure to get the remastered version with the new, bloodier cover art. The mastering brings out things in the music that aren't as apparent on the original Intense Records version.

The above reviews nail it all on most points.Would've loved to have heard this line-up continue on for multiple albums.Ted Kirkpatrick a criminally underrated drummer ???? H*ll yes,some of the drumming on Stop' is freaking unbelievable outright ridiculous .......As are the vocals of Guy Ritter.Superb .

This CD is great!!!I have the re-issue which has a bunch of bounus tracks not on the original release.Some live cuts and demos.This is classic 80's speed metal,with very thought provoking lyrics.Some of Guy Ritter's vocals are reminiscent of King Diamond.Every song on this CD hammers the Word of God into you with machine gun intensity.Definately worth having if you're a crusty old headbanger like me.A 10/10 for sure.

I like this album very much, you'll never get to hear Guy singing/screaming this high-pitched anymore! BTW the "personnel" is still wrong: Steve Andino?!? Steve joined Tourniquet in 2003 to do the bass on "Where Moth and Rust Destroy". Him being on Tourniquet's debut album is ridiculous. There were just Ted Kirkpatrick, Guy Ritter and Gary Lenaire. The craziest solos on "Ark of Suffering" and "You Get What You Pray For" are done by Mark Lewis.

A good freshemt effort. This band get a lot better so if you like the album you will really love the bands later efforts. Ark of Suffering and You get what You Pray for are instant hits. The rest will grow on you, with a couple lousy songs that you will always skip!@
