Four years after "Order Of The Illuminati" the masters of Metal, agents of steel are back with a vengeance. At times faster and more furious than on their previous two outings with Bruce Hall on vocals, and with a clear yet heavy and modern production and mix by the legendary Thrash producer Bill Metoyer. Alienigma kicks off with a nice up-tempo Fashioned By Dust, which is followed by one of the prize tracks of this album, Wash The Planet Clean, my God, what a memorable riff here and also the rest of the guitar work, showing the Garcia Versailles tandem at their fiery best. All songs are characterised by Garcia and Versailles versatile riffing and soloing and by Bruce Hall's flexible vocals.
US Power/Thrash of the finest order, usually up-tempo and thrashy as hell, like in the eighties, and at other times mid-tempo and slightly reminiscent of good old Crimson Glory (especially on Wormwood where certain vocal lines do remind me of the once mighty Midnight singing). Modern sounding without going off the edge and still firmly planted in the eighties that's what Alienigma offers!
