A great version of a great album ruined by poor remixing, underwhelming compared with the original Japanese version - Shadows of War. The vocal and guitar performances on that release are more aggressive with a 'bigger' overall sound. Lightning Strikes has lighter singing with overdubbed choruses and more restrained guitar parts. The superb remaster of Shadows of War is available in the US from Wounded Bird Records.
