Like the reviewer below says, he set set the record straight.
Maybe the one before was a wind up?
Nuclear Assault were first. SOD were a long time Second (well, not that long, but long enough). Also SOD couldn't have come from some kind of break up of Nuclear Assault, as the band were made up of bloody 3 different bands to start with. This is a matter that I'm thinking 99.9% of SOD & Nukes fans don't really need to be told?
Any way. History is history.
Game over is a quality album. The only problem is that the other big fish in the speed and thrash world were just purer quality. Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, when you talk of big hitters in 80's thrash, you talk about them. (Even if you don't like them, record sales speak for themselves!)
Game over has some great riffing on it. There are some parts where you just have to bang your head! But, its either been done before, or was done at the same time, and done so much better.
The vocals on every Nuke album grate on me. Thats half the let down for me. The vocals. I can't explain it. I like Joey Beladonna's vocals,(Which I use for high pitched comparable purposes). He had talent, but what Connelly produces is, well, honestly not all that?!!!!
I actually like Nuclear Assault, don't get me wrong, I just don't like them as much as most of the other big named stuff that was out at the time. The difference between this album and say, Master Of Puppets, is that Game over, any track, has no real ambition to be anything other than a good thrash album. Not a great thrash album, or indeed a highly original thrash album. Just a very well played, tight, fast "Nukes style" thrash album.

From the awesome art work, revolutionary music and Fantastic lyrics... Game Over is a masterpiece, and a genuine Thrash Metal Classic.

This record contains truly original breakneck Thrash Metal; coupled with intelligent socially aware lyrics, bonehead humour and fretmelting guitar solos.

John Connely's vocal style is a high pitched 'love it or hate it' scream, and is supported by more standard pitched backing vocals. Glenn's Drumming is always appropriate, brutal and uncompromising when necessary or delicate and stylish where appropriate and Dan's bass style (made famous on Fistful Of Metal by Anthrax) is fast, fuzzy and fun.

The guitars are inventive, full of classically inspired solos and buzz saw speed, but are produced in such a way that makes them seem intense in complexity, yet subdued enough to listen to without discomfort unlike a few of the faster Slayer songs.

This is a true landmark in Thrash, and its rather unfortunate how obscure the band are. If you like it, spread the word.

I you have never heard Nuclear Assault, i recommend Handle With Care(there other album) as it is easier to listen to and therefore first impressions are that it is a better album. But if you get into this album by listening to it a few times then you will soon realise what a masterpiece this is and that it blows Handle with Care away!! The first track is pretty average by Nuclear Assault standards but by the time Cold Steel kicks in, i knew i had got my money's worth on that track alone! The power that it gives as they pour out those power chords is immense with electric drumming sealing the songs Exquisitely. I fail to come up with words to describe it, the only way you will find out is to BUY IT!!!!!! and get the same emotional reponse i had when to purchased this stunner from a not so well known Band. Hail nuclear assault.

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.
