John McEntee, Owner of Ibex Moon Records comments: "I was blown when I first heard this band. They have such a sincere heavy, catchy and aggressive death metal vibe. It reminded me of the first time I heard some of the classic Scandinavian death metal bands of the late 80's early 90's. I feel that FATALIST is a extremely promising band and will be a staple of the worldwide death metal scene. I'm proud to have them as a part of the Ibex Moon roster."
Neil Burkdoll states, "We are really excited and happy to be working with Ibex Moon. With bands like Nominon, Funerus, and Incantation, how can you go wrong? John has been very supportive of us and we look forward to releasing a great album in 2008."
