“This year we decided to expand the compilation beyond just bands from our scene, which was really fun. Adding in Untimely Demise, Bookakee, Samskaras and Unbreakable Hatred, plus some less extreme though equally punishing bands like Alaskan and Greber, had allowed us to put together a compilation that really showcases the talent and variety of underground metal that Canada has to offer.”

Joining the likes of legendary Canadian thrash originators such as Sacrifice and Voivod, as well as modern rising talents Augury and Suicidal Angels, we realize that we have found a perfect fit for our sophisticated thrash/death metal sound! We had been in talks with about half a dozen labels that had expressed interest in our band, but none of them hit the nail on the head like the one we signed with. Furthermore, this label has been receptive to our music since we first made contact with them in early 2009, so this isn't just some spur of the moment decision. Working with their talented and passionate team of music fanatics assures that our music will reach the right audience, and ultimately the interests of the art will take precedence over everything else. Totally stoked to see where we can take this thing!"
