"ok, so they are not a fast death-metal band, but they do know how to rock. the lead vocalist sings in the key of manowar's vocalist and kreator's vocalist, and last but not least, sodom's vocalist. to sum it up, if you have manowar, kreator, and sodom in your collection, raise hell's latest belongs in it too."
Is this the same band?

"I don't know what these guys are trying to do."Holy target" is a death-black metal machine. Considered the new Dissection by their laber Nuclear Blast. It's incredible how strong these guys sounded in their first effort. Now, they still sound strong. But they change the blood, malevolence, high-speed-black metal songs for leather, steel, girls(see the cover), and Manowar-like compositions(I love Manowar, but they never changed).It's OK for a band to change. But not like this. You'll find fast songs like "Not dead yet", but forget to find something as wild, savage, brutal as "Raise the devil", "Holy Target" or "Superior Powers"; you'll also find the semi-ballad "Devilyn". The only positive thing I've found are the vocals. This dude sounds as Mille Petrozza. So be aware!If you like death-black metal get "Holy Target". If you like Manowar or the new Megadeth get "Not dead yet" It's a shame what these folks did. They could have been great!!"

"okay.. I liked "Holy Target" just as the next death/black metal fan did, but this? nah.. not quite for me. I mean I can only assume these guys were extremely bored and felt like goofing off when they recorded this stuff. musically, it isn't half bad, but sounds very 80s-retro-riff-...to me, but so many bands do that these days... The lyrics though... my god... they are some of the cheesiest most ridiculous you could ever hear. And, unfortunately, since the vocalist is rather coherent with his Mille Petrozza-like vocal style, you actually will hear them... I can only assume that they MEANT to sound this cheesy... Maybe just for fun, but nonetheless, I advise you to skip this goof-ball release and buy "Holy Target" if you want to sample this band."
