Much to my surprise, I really liked it...and soon I found myself listening to it daily. The song 1978 has grown on me, but is easily the weakest link on the album. Man, this record is such a fun listen. With the 70's and early New Wave Of British Heavy Metal influence, it is surprising that most of these guys used to play in a couple of 90's death metal bands.
I don't typically pay much attention to what Century Media releases, and I haven't even bothered to check out the latest Sick Of It All album they released. When I was checking out some vinyl in the CM Distro store, I saw The Dagger LP and didn't hesitate to finally buy myself a copy. This would have been a tough contender to break my Top 10 list for 2014.
