Despite the album being finished in March 1990, the album's release was delayed due to the pending much-publicized subliminal message trial that began on 16 July 1990. The band were the subject of a civil lawsuit alleging their recording was responsible for the suicide attempts of two young men in Reno, Nevada on 23 December 1985. The case was eventually dismissed on 24 August 1990. With the trial behind them, the band finally released the album on 3 September 1990.
questo disco è la sintesi suprema ed ineguagliata del concetto stesso dell'heavy metal, è la Bibbia dalla quale attingere i migliori insegnamenti metallici! La title-track spazza via tutto,così come Leather Rebel, Metal Meltdown, Touch Of Evil, One Shot At Glory...è inutile continuare,qua c'è solo da ascoltare, godere e pogare. CAPOLAVORO ASSOLUTO!
