Despite what he appears to think about the band’s history, the previous reviewer is actually a mile wrong. S.O.D. were formed as a side project by members of Anthrax, M.O.D. and Nuclear Assault, they didn’t form from the splitting up of that group. That aside, they were (and having reformed, are again) a top class old school Thrash Metal outfit, though it’s fair to say they weren’t in the class of the big boys of the genre like Slayer, Metallica or Anthrax. Even Exodus and Testament were better in truth, but despite this, Nuclear Assault were still excellent With some wicked head-banging riffs and John Connelly’s distinctive high-pitched vocals, they had a style slightly different to most of their contemporaries. With the legendary and ridiculously over-the-top ‘Hang The Pope’ on this record, you can see the beginnings of Dan Lilker’s grindcore spin-off Brutal truth five years before they even formed. If you like your Thrash fast, uncompromising and purely old-school, ‘Game Over’ might just be the record for you.
