Don't know if posted before or not.

In my opinion Fit For Fight is one of the best heavy metal albums ever, but this is pure crap. The vocals are horrible and the riffs are rather simple warm-up riffs. And why they didn't use their logo?

Opinions?

the cover motive could have been really cool if drawn(or MADE) by another artist.. that there just looks terrible

Did they get the singer from The Offspring to join ?
The riffing sounds ok to me though.

The Offspring - killboy powerhead (Didjits cover song)

i can tolarate it, expecially it was just one song so far, but... definitely singer is not so good, or at least sounds really weird as well as rest are not that special... or at least coverart looks pretty lame, and particular song is not that great

I agree, terrible. They asked me to release it and I turned it down.

thread title got me excited, then contents of thread got me discouraged. I think I might avoid even listening to this all together so as to not taint the previous image/perception I've build in my mind to this point. one definitely has to ask themselves why even bother with a comeback at this point? I guess we can label this as a typical cash grab? riding the coattails of their recent resurgence in popularity due to the fit for fight reissues? hard to say... I still don't see the point of starting back up nearly 30 years after the fact...

The music isn't bad at all; the vocals and super-slick production make it suck!

That song they have streaming is pretty bad, but this album preview from a few months ago has some pretty cool sounding songs.

Reminds me of the band Axehammer

Didn't like it at all. Still have Fit For Fight to spin forever though. Didn't imagine them ever releasing new material

why isn't the original singer on this? He is still singing, in a Led Zeppelin cover band right?

Heard one song which I liked (on the HHR sampler). Wasn't bad, had some catchy riffing, the singing was ok... not a fan of the production. Though if it's as bad you all say it is, I guess I'll keep listening to Fit For Fight...

No, I don't think it's bad, just not what I expected. Mainly due to the different singing. The songs are okay.
Kind of getting used to it so might wind up buying this ...if I ever get over being pissed off I can't buy their DVD alone. The dvd is only sold with the CD version of the All That's Fit For Fighting release. Pisses me off that I would have to buy again what I already have on vinyl just for the dvd.

Guess I am not enough of a fan to splurge that much.
At least not a fan crazy enough to spend right now. Which is a stumbling block for me to buy their new album or anything else they do.

Need to get this eventually. I heard a few of the new tracks live at Muskelrock and they sounded quite good to me. Had no problems with the new vocalist either, he did a good job.
