If Saviours' Crucifire was their Kill 'em All, then Into Abaddon could be considered their Ride the Lightening. It's 's hard to overlook the fact that the more straightforward, go for the throat, no life till leather grittiness of the Oakland band's debut has been replaced with a more focused direction that's not afraid of a little complexity, even if that does mean a sacrifice in overall aggression. The seven songs on Into Abaddon have plenty of classic Bay Area chugga-chugga riffs, but they're driven by some raging guitar leads that have as much in common with mid-80s Murray-Smith as they do early Hammett and Hetfield (or, more aptly, Holt and Hunolt). Pretty much every song culminates with a solo or two that's best described as “blistering”. If you dug Crucifire, there's no reason you won't want to pick this one up as well.
