There is plenty to celebrate about this album. It is chock full of well-crafted energetic slices of hardcore punk heaven. There are plenty of classic ripping riffs, mixing with the solos.
This album hands you deep and dirty grooves one minute and then spine-tingling beauty the next.
America was so excited to have them come over, then they left my picture out. I had a contract with them as the sixth-member for the album……, breach of contract. So, by leaving my name– my face out, Rudolf was able to fabricate an appearance over there as if nobody is missing.
