They also published a number of compilation albums, under the name of "Speed Kills…", followed by any term that would relate to a then popular metal song. In the meanwhile, they also released the third and fourth album of Swedish black metal band Bathory , which secured their status more and more. This enabled them to sign bands from the likes of Nuclear Assault and Forbidden. Under One Flag bought the rights to a number of previously released thrash metal albums, among which a significant part of the catalogue of Combat Records.

We are to be unique, yet not a loner. We are supposed to be courageous yet prudent. The solution to this feeling of inevitable failure? For too many of us the solution is to not try at all. Why try?

Was around these guys back in the 80's and early 90's growing up, when the style and sound was right in line with all the heavy hitters at the time - Metallica, Exodus, Flotsam and Jetsam, Hallow's Eve, Slayer It was a shame they couldnt hold it together and take it to the next level.

It is this insulated, flat sonic profile that damaged the punch of a lot of material released around this time, and this album is certainly no exception in that regard. Lohwasser's kit clangs decently enough, as does Jenkins' pluggy bass, but the guitars are pretty inert and meager sounding. This certainly does the band no favors, and essentially seals Punishment Area 's fate as a disappointing debut release. You end up wishing the band would experiment further, as the acoustic tones that open up "Have No Fear" are quite well done.
The leads and solos are also exceptionally ripe, embodying one of the few bright spots on this otherwise rather sordid affair. While Faith or Fear certainly had a rough go of it, including the death of Jenkins on stage in , it doesn't change the fact that they were always nothing more than a second-tier thrash act that got a well-deserved break and fumbled the ball.
Maybe their comeback LP Titanium will change my mind, but it's all the same to me at the end of the day. Faith or Fear was once poised on a pretty high seat within the emergent thrash scene of the 80s.
In fact, for many a spry young metal fan out there in the States, this VHS tape was an introduction to the sounds of most of these acts. There was little chatter in advance.After releasing only one album the band split up. As of Faith or Fear has done a few reunion gigs (see photo at bottom). Here's hoping for some new studio material from them as well. Faith or Fear-Punishment Area (Century Media) 1. "Lack of Motivation" () 2. "C.D.S." () 3. "Punishment Area" ().
