After All - Cult Of Sin (2009)

Cult of Sin sounds down to earth, with powerful guitar crunch and excellent drumming. The bass takes a back seat to the rest of the band, but you'll still hear it plodding along. One of the more grounded and song-heavy thrash albums I've heard this year, it has provided me with more than enough reason to track down some of their earlier material. I definitely recommend this to any fan of quality thrash/power metal, nothing too showy but full of impressive hooks and a fairly original sound for the genre. It's the type of album that will stick with you for some time.
By the way, album was recorded by Dee J. at HypeStudio, and mixed & mastered by Dan Swano at Unisound Studio. Also guests are two guitars - Juan Garcia & Bernie Versailles, bass - Joey Vera, vocal - James Rivera.
