What we are offered here is a downright flawless piece of pure heavy metal, plain and simple and I cannot stress that fact enough.  Okay, stop reading this review right now and give the EP a quick listen to let the music sink in.  At first glance, we can immediately give Danger Zone praise for releasing some of the most impressive Italian heavy metal in history.

The first track “Victim of Time” is a kick-in-your-face speed/power metal attack that will surely get you off your seat, or get that head banging like no tomorrow, and is no doubt the best song off the album. And man you gotta love Merlini’s melodic voice that fits oh so perfectly with the band’s sound.  These harmonies could easily turn any extreme metalhead into a truther with just one listen!  What the hell am I saying, every damn song is fantastic, just absolutely magical in the sense that it is quite hard finding bands that sound like this in the 80s, let alone today.  If I would continue writing about how much I completely idolize and love this band, this post would surely never end.  Hands down the greatest thing to have ever come out from Italy!
