    Alien is a very good album, very heavy, but lots of riffing and very few solos. I like that.the only negative point is the poor guitarsolo on track 6 (?). It's the only guitarsolo on the album, but it would have been better if they would have just left it off.

    However, original approach to metal and an own sound.

    solos wouldnt fit in SYL at all theres no need for them, I think the only reason they put a solo in We ride is cause its kind of a cheese metal song anyway haha
