'Plague of Conscience' is violent, demonic, and aggressive, as typically found in old Bay Area thrash pattern, and that's what SAVAGE MESSIAH's latest album is all about. The very first track is fast-paced with blistering rhythm, the riffs are mindblowing, and the hellish scream at the beginning sparks the signal that they're about to wreck havoc. That's a fantastic track, but too bad, I didn't feel that way on the next two tracks.

'In Thought Alone' brings back the energy and it's amazing to hear the roaring guitars with a brilliant chorus to sing along. Now, the band achieved the peak performance on 'All Seeing I', this is what I call a thrash perfection, a marvelous headbanging gem, and definitely the best tune here. Two other great tracks are 'Architects of Fear' and 'Shadowbound' but the rest didn't really hold up after repetitive spins.

The production is pretty good but honestly I think the vocal part is probably the weakest link here. Not really that bad but it's just too average and almost anybody can replace his spot. With probably 3-4 gems here, this album is risky of wearing thin quickly, but I admire how the twin guitar works effectively, like in 'The Accuser', the riffs are incinerating and ready to set ablaze a whole city. Pretty good album!
