CIA

"Attitude" (Screaming Ferret; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

"Attitude" is a digitally remastered and re-released album from Nuclear Assault drummer Glenn Evans. Originally issued in limited numbers back in 1992, the nine-track collection was done primarily by Evans with a few friends filling in on guitar, showcasing Evans' multiple talents. 

But make no mistake: CIA is without question an old school thrash act, complete with incessant double bass drumming and speed metal guitar riffs, and surprisingly, it still stands up by much of today's American metal standards, especially in the guitar solo department. 

If you crave for the days when Metallica wore their hair long and Megadeth was unclean and unsober, then "Attitude" will give you the jolt you need as you anxiously await the new Nuclear Assault disc.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
