Personally I find them more in tune with some of the late 80's, early 90's metals than current metal scene, since they tend to tread in areas previously covered by those bands of the “hair metal” era. Now before you go “eewwww”, they don’t fall into the cliches of those bands as their approach is far more interesting than most of those in that era.
TOC really didn’t excite me as much as I hoped when I first got the cd and read about them. I can say that if you’re into that metal based music that sorta treads on progressive turf, then check TOC out. Oh they do a cover song, which seems to be the norm theses days for bands, but their disjointed, thrash-metal version of the classic Deep Purple song, Smoke on the Water could have kept off of this CD and maybe use it as a b-side instead.
