Although "War Ensemble" starts the album off at high speed, harking back to Reign in Blood, the album mostly continues the melodic growth seen on South of Heaven. Track two, "Blood Red", is somewhat reminiscent of Iron Maiden (one of the bands formitive influences) and there is a strong Black Sabbath influence thoughout the record. "Seasons in the Abyss" ends the album in a similar fashion to "Spill The Blood" from South of Heaven, with a clean guitar part at the start.
