"What do Lamb of God, Gojira, and Iron Maiden have in common with A Band of Orcs? Band members with an endorsement from Jackson Guitars! And what's more metal than a killer Jackson flying V or limited edition Kelly? Nothing.
"Thus, Cretos Filthgrinder and Hulg ElfR.I.P.per have proudly accepted the endorsement of Jackson Guitars and joined the Bloodline family.
"Artist Relations Manager Chris Cannella had this to say about A Band of Orcs: "I first put in the video only to be taken back by the high level of production and quality of the video. Just amazing. I then waited for the track to begin and in all honesty most bands use theatrics to cover up lack of talent. This is NOT the case here. I am currently listening to CD now and have to say this is pretty bad*ss stuff. I would love to work with you."
"Thank you Chris and Jackson Guitars. Cretos and Hulg will remain brutal representatives of the best guitars in metal."
