Back in the 80s Artillery were one of the biggest European thrash sensations on the scene characterized by intense, energetic riffing and unique vocals of Flemming Ronsdorf, somewhat reminiscent of Slayer and Megadeth from the same era. Today Metal Mind Productions present re-release of Terror Squad in a new digipak edition limited to 2000 copies. "Terror Squad", first released in 1997, is definitely Artillery's shining moment with lots of mosh beats, great thrash riffs, plenty of speedy solos, and unique vocals that are a balanced mixture of growl and melody. The album gained a legendary status, becoming some of the most thrilling thrash releases of the late 80s period. New edition includes 7 bonus tracks. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc

"One of the most ferocious, criminally overlooked thrash metal cd's ever released, Artillery's "Terror Squad" is an undisputed classic thrash metal disc. Insanely heavy and brutally conceived, the disc suffered from under exposure during its' original release because of their original label's, Neat Records, lack of advertisemnet and its poor distribution. Nonetheless, thrash enthusiasts rejoice world wide! Artillery's rerelease is upon us, so there's no reason NOt to aquire this essential piece of thrash history! Stand out songs are "The Challenge", insane thrash at its finest! "Terror Squad", massive, pounding metal; and the best song on the disc, "At War With Science", A tremendous, all out thrash classsic that NEEDS to be had!"

"Artillery is a great unknown trash-metal band from Denmark. The music is extremely heavy and fast, very similar to Slayer but in my opinion better rhythms. The lead gutairist runs scales so fast it is hard to stay up with him, and the drumming is non-stop in your face pounding. The lyrics and singing is not the best, mostly high-pitched screams but the hard guitar rhythms make up 80% of the songs on this album. This is not the greatest metal album, but if your into fast speed metal you will enjoy it."

"This album is killer. BUY IT! Insanely heavy guitar and riffing. Classic thrash from early 1990s. Highly recommended."
