Know Your Enemy is a classic thrash album in essence – regarding riffs and song structure – and at the same time has a very original sound. Take Last breath, for example. The riffs are quite simple and by the book. Like many other 80s bands, Lääz Rockit does sort of fall between genre distinctions. I'd say they are just as much early power metal as they are a thrash band. This album marked a slight shift from their earlier street metal sound (No Stranger to Danger), and after this they'd get even more thrashy on Annihilation Principle. In any case, Know Your Enemy has a nice raw energy to it which I enjoyed more than their other albums. It may not be first rate songwriting but it's good enough and I'm sure many thrashers wax nostalgic about this.
