"'Alien' is a musical terror attack!" Heavy Oder Was !? (D)
"...after this ride you feel free and easy like after your first orgasm - and you will beg for more." Rock Hard (D)
"Unbound Metal cannot possibly be more exciting!" Metal Heart (D)
"...I don't want to imagine what Mr. Townsend would do with a machine gun.." Metal Hammer (D)
"The end result is... well, absolutely fucking fantastic." Chronicles Of Chaos (UK)
