“For a long time we have been thinking to start a new series of
releases that would present selected Metal bands of today. But we
simply needed the band that would blow our minds away and would make
us start this whole project. The surprise came from Australia. From
the very first time that we listened to the advance promo of their
debut we were sure that this was THE band. Why? Because in their music
you will find all the power, the energy and the inspiration that
would give form to the perfect Metal album. We caught ourselves not
being able to stop listening to their stuff and to tell you the truth
it was mostly an action of fan-driven enthusiasm than any kind of
label strategy to sign those Australian Metalheads. They rule!”
