From what I've heard, Jimmy Brown was really tired of doing speed metal at this point and longed to do something a bit different - more creative. However, the record company insisted on another disc like Weapons but they got this. It's full of joke songs and filler and even a dig at the last album in the intro. Still, even when the guys are half-assing it they manage to put out some quality speed metal. "Pseudo Intellectual" and "A Product of Society" are prime metal cuts. I also like the the cover of Black Sabbath's "After Forever." I am even amused by all the short tracks as they're not nearly long enough to be annoying. Not to mention there's a better version of "Attack." When the heck are they gonna rerelease this one?

Useless Fact: Roger Martinez of Vengeance Rising provides some guest vox on "It's the Beat," a song criticizing those who think rock and metal are evil just because of the beat.
