"Hey everybody we are back home, had time to relax and are now working on THRASH ANTHEMS II already. We wanna thank all the fans that came to he second leg of our UNDER ATTACK European tour. We really do appreciate the support in rather difficult times in many East European countries – you people rocked our roundtrip big time. Due the icecold winter this year, it wasn`t always easy and we were all fighting the usual influenza, annoying fever and a cough from hell that didn´t wanna go away.
The shows in Stockholm, Katowice, Kosice and Sofia been the highlights of this tour, many other shows were really awesome as well – you maniacs ruled the pit!
In the end of our adventurous voyage we were facing some organizational issues and some diverse contractual difficulties. We had to cancel one show due the lack of professional equipment & environment plus serious safety issues – it is always really frustrating to not play a concert when you have traveled for hours and hours. We partly understood the anger of the disappointed Italian fans, we were devastated as well but all lies spread by unprofessional local promoters will have consequences in future bookings of the band. Dignity, honor and honesty have to be part of this business.
We will not gamble anymore to discover new places and face risky and venturous events and markets. Yes it was curious and amazing in the same time but we are not able do continue this way. We did this traveling circus now for many decades and will give this task now to all those young and wild bands that will follow our path and are ready to discover the end of the world …good luck with that!
Cheers for 34 years of metal-history folks - it was a pleasure!"
