If you're a fan of 80's thrash, you really can't go wrong with this band. They have a sound that's somewhere between Exodus and Anthrax. Their lyrics cover the gamut of thrash topics, with a definite nod to the humorous subjects covered by Stormtroopers of Death. You don't have to tell FKU that this has all been done before; they know this. FKU are having a great time playing these tunes. You should have a great time listening to them.

The first track has a nice thrash pace, with lots of Anthrax and SOD influence, especially in the mosh part. The singer has a little Zetro in his vocals until the end of the song when he lets the falsetto fly. The lyrics are especially funny as they contain a lot of song titles of classic thrash tunes strung together to make sentences that actually make sense. The second track is a Tankard cover. This song stays pretty faithful to the original, though the ripping solo in the middle has a strong Slayer feel with lots of whammy bar abuse.
