This was a real treat, and a big surprise. Sure, I expected Wumpscut, Mentallo and the Fixer, Evil’s Toy, and Haujobb to kick out the jams, but I had no idea every track was going to be great – I just expected a boring label sampler. I mean, even Front Line Assembly are awesome on this, and I have not been a fan of their more recent work. One of my other new favorites, Thinkingman‘s “Screaming Saints,” hits hard and doesn’t let up. It’s a killer song from a band I never expected much from. Of the 14 tracks, there are five previously unreleased songs and the rest are top quality remixes. As far as label samplers go, this is a superior product and whoever compiled the tracks deserves a pat on the back. Get this and be very happy.
