Viper are pegged as an Iron Maiden clone and while that isn't necessarily a bad thing I think it's totally wrong. What you have here is mid-paced melodic speedmetal featuring pretty damn good lead guitar work and power metal vocals. They didn't reinvent the wheel by any means but this is a pretty choice selection of traditional '80s metal and really helped put Brazil's scene on the map. I think this album definitely stands on its own merits and warrants multiple listens over the years. One look at that cover and you know you're in store for an epic treat.
