After downloading the album, I gave it a quick listen. Yeah, it was okay, but it didn't immediately grab me, so I moved on to one of the ten other new albums that I'd added to my iPod.
By the end of 2013, I was checking out some of the new music I'd added to the iPod over the past year, and in checking out Tantara's Based On Evil album, I was suddenly floored by how great it was. Funny how sometimes music just clicks like that.
Since I like to own a physical copy, and not just download albums for my iPod, I had to hunt down the vinyl. I was placing an order with Nuclear Blast Germany at the end of the year, and decided that it was finally time to grab a copy of this LP. Awesome Bay Area influenced Thrash.
