It's a familiar story in the metal world: band experiences countless personnel changes, band has a hard time maintaining a stable lineup, band unveils new lineup on new album, fans either breathe a sigh of relief and applaud new lineup or complain that band has lost it and gone to hell. Thankfully, Threat Signal's fans can breath a sigh of relief when they hear Vigilance, the Toronto metalheads' second album.

While Jon Howard was working with ex-members of Fear Factory to release an album for Arkaea, skeptics believed if the same repetitive feel of Years in the Darkness was going to be shown in Threat Signal's sophomore release Vigilance. Repetitive and regurgitated is what we heard, and that is what we got. This uninteresting thought of an album took every unique, novel idea from Under Reprisal and threw it to the pigs. The first track, Afterlife, already shows a courteous amount of variance from its predecessor
