Considered by many as the worst Christian metal release ever. And to be truthful, I can see why. This band had a lousy singer, horrible production, and musicians who sound like they just picked up their instruments a few days ago! And to top it off, the lyrics are pretty lame too. But despite all this, I still find this album to have a certain charm. I can't explain it really, but some of the songs sound catchy in my ear. I bought it as a new release on cassette, but have since then upgraded it to CD. That was a much more difficult task than I first would have imagined. Considering the bad rap this CD gets, you would have thought that people would let you have it for free. But the CD is quite hard to get a hold of, so I guess most people just tossed it in the trash! Torn Flesh mix together what can be considered as thrash metal, with a punk attitude. They can be compared to another Christian act, called One Bad Pig.
