Ordered To Kill = LP, White / Red Splatter = (LP)
One thing that this release gets right is its atmosphere. Whether it is the morose, dark sounding opening to Dawn Of Death or the bleak punk-inspired fifth track The Hammer, or perhaps the chilling German sound clips that open up Ilsa, At War never let the listener miss the cruel and powerful sound they are going for. The war messages are delivered with painful accuracy both through the lyrical content and the music itself, and this is arguably one of the best war-themed albums ever recorded. All eight songs recreate the bleak portrait of war and show off all of the dark sides of the subject masterfully and for this, the band truly deserves applause. If one was to strive to find one thing to criticize about this album it would perhaps be that at times the vocals get a little monotonous but they really suit the outlook on war that this release is trying to go for, and for that they should be commended. At War's debut is a spectacular take on thrash metal that never lets up, and for that reason I highly recommend it to any fan of the genre.
