Album Review

Some would say that California is the state that spawned thrash metal, as such renowned acts as Exodus, Testament, and of course Metallica all hailed from there. But in their wake, it's not as if wave after wave of thrash metallists have sprung up from the land of Joe Montana and Barry Bonds.
