I must confess I am not much of a fan of death metal. There are a few bands I dig, but my interest in this album was purely for the Judas Priest cover, "Grinder." (Cookie Monster would be proud of S.F.U.'s interpretation of the song.) I saw this used for $2.99 and decided to pick it up for that song alone. However, the whole disc ended up being pretty darn good.
