Stand up all fans of early Deliverance and Tourniquet. Towne Cryer are a Sanctuary band who come from the same school of speed metal, or technical thrash, or whatever it's called. "Chuggety-chugg-chugga-chugga" goes the guitar over thunderous drums and driving bass lines, whilst vocalist Gena McClure growls her way through a barrage of Revelationesque songs, with titles like "Time Ran Out" and "Sacrifice Of The Lamb". There's also the obligatory "Rawk" version of Psalm 23- "Shadow Of Death". In all honesty 'Against All Evil' is actually a pretty good metal album. It's got some tight chops and good lead work from Steve Metzger and Jerry Rotz. It's a shame that it's lyrically so clichéd and predictable, and it does sound quite dated; but then it was originally released in 1992.
