"Paingod (the Florida one, not to be confused with the German power metal band) play what was, in the mid-nineties, being refered to as post-thrash. Pantera popularized it and bands like Machine Head, Skinlab, and Pissing Razors carried the torch even further. It would be easy to write Paingod off as Machine Head clones given that this album was released about the same time Machine Head were close to the peak of their popularity, but I honestly believe there is more depth to them than that. Tho the riffs do, at times, sound overly familiar - Paingod seem to have their own musical agenda. I consider this release to be a genre stand out and an across the board good metal album. I remember seeing this band open up for Coroner during the Mental Vortex tour. At that time they were called Raped Ape, but the music was pretty much in the same style they eventually released the Paingod album with."
