"After long and hard work, we just finished the studio work for 'Burn After Reaping' and I can assure you, that the songs will kick major ass!! It will be louder and more brutal than anything you’ve heard before! Our producer Corni Bartels pushed us to the limit and made the album what it is right now – a fucking killer! We have done a lot of crazy things and tried a lot to pimp the album. 'Burn After Reaping' will differ from 'Death Prevails' if it comes to songwriting and sound, but of course all known HACKNEYED trademarks have been kept. Björn Goosses of KILLUSTRATIONS (DEW-SCENTED, ABORTED etc…) created the artwork which matches our expectations perfectly. It fits the album like every single song!"
