"I think this is the BEST reactions we ever had for a new album since INFERNAL OVERKILL, not even our best selling album THE ANTICHRIST had such an impact on the billboards of the world! We are talking underground music here, so it`s an amazing statement for THRASH & the fans! A big CHEERS to all those rebels who don t accept the norm and support the sound of the pit!"
