The first Speed/Thrash Metal album
A. Antero | 03/16/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When it comes to first Speed/Thrash Metal albums, people usually start with Metallica's "Kill 'em All" (1983), or at best, either Jaguar's "Power Games" (1983) or Exciter's "Heavy Metal Maniac" (1983) which were both on the streets before Metallica. If you want to try your luck, you might put your bets on Anvil's classic "Metal On Metal" (1982), but it's actually Power Metal.

The truth? Well, Raven crashed, banged and walloped already in 1981 with their debut LP "Rock Until You Drop". Let the boys have the honour they deserve, this is the first Speed/Thrash Metal album ever!

Raven are commonly considered as a New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band. Sure they are that too, but their form of music in "Rock Until You Drop" and its' follow-up album "Wiped Out" (1982) is pure Speed/Thrash.

If you want a piece of fast, powerful, hilarious, totally OTT Metal with awesome songwriting, look no further. Cool expanded edition too. Raven did it first."
One of the best of early 80's metal
Lab Rat | Southport, IN USA | 03/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Raven was a band with a very distinctive sound, as were most of the NWOBHM bands. The trio, fronted by the Gallagher brothers on guitar, bass and vocs, and with Rob "Wacko" Hunter pounding the skins, put out a wall of sound that most bands would envy. While the production quality would benefit from a facelift of sorts, this is a seminal album from early 80's metal. This is music from back in the day when bands could be distinguished by the first few notes of music because they didn't all sounds like clones. There isn't a weak track on this album, and the bonus tracks (like "Inquisitor") make it an even sweeter package."
THE BAND THAT STARTED IT ALL ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Digital Motorsports | U.S.A. | 10/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If it were not for this band then you would not have Metallica Anthrax or Slayer! Best live act ever! Too bad thier managers and record companies led them in the wrong direction. THESE GUYS ARE THE GODFATHERS OF THRASH! Buy this album along with "Wiped Out" "All For One" and "Live at the Inferno" YOU MUST RESPECT THIER AUTHORITAYYYYYYY!"
