Another band from California that started from playing heavy/speed metal (obviously influenced by NWOBHM and other European metal of that time, like Brainfever), then made an unfortunate decision to switch to thrash/death metal. This album isn't 10/10 either (some of the songs aren't very catchy; the quality of recording is not perfect, but still quite good for a 80's metal band), but at least the opening track is really excellent. I couldn't find the lyrics for it anywhere, but here's a guess from someone on youtube, which seems to be quite accurate:

"In the time of your nightmares, 
When demons & darkness control, 
You feel the anger 
And fight till the night sky explodes

Giving no thought to the danger, 
The danger that lies up ahead, 
Crawling your way through the darkness 
And terror that lies in its stare

You know your time is waning, 
You feel it in the wind, 
The terror now is reigning, 
Tts time the reign begins, 
Its time to go"
