THREAT SIGNAL
UNDER REPRISAL
NUCLEAR BLAST

Canadian quintet Threat Signal's debut was produced by Christian Olde Wolbers, a guy that knows a thing or two about crushing metal. Rest assured that this 11-track disc is laden with the kind of pulverizing polyrhythmics, brazen vocal and guitar batterings, and huge-sounding, synthesized choruses that we'd expect from a band under his wing, with a good smattering of Raunchy, Soilwork, In Flames, and Megadeth rounding out this outfit's sound. Armed with dynamic songwriting ("Counter Balance"), a twin guitar assault that stands up amongst metal's elite ("Rational Eyes"), and flashes of sheer brutality ("Now"), UNDER REPRISAL sound more Swedish than Canuck, yet they convincingly get the job done with an intriguing mix of modern metal.
