Less than a month after announcing the addition of guitarist Tracii Guns (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, ex-L.A. GUNS) to the group's ranks, QUIET RIOT have issued a statement confirming that Guns will, in fact, no longer be a member of the band. The statement reads as follows:

"Although we all had high hopes and the best intentions for the success of our association, it became evident collective that the musical diversity of styles would not work to our mutual satisfaction. Rather than go into the recording studio unsure of the outcome, QUIET RIOT and Tracii Guns have decided to amicably part company but remain friends and hold each other in the highest respect.

"QUIET RIOT will still enter the studio in late January to record new songs for the next studio release, the first new material from the band since the release of 'Guilty Pleasures' in 2001.

"Look for QUIET RIOT on tour upon completion of the new recordings."

I'm gonna get bashed for this...but I saw Quiet Riot a few years ago...definitely out of their prime...but man they had fun...just nostalgia you know. I got to hang out with the band for a few minutes and chat. Banali is a cool guy...really has a respect for music. They had no delusion that they were gonna do something big ever again. They played to about 200 people that night...and they performed just like they did back when they played for 20,000 people. I have always considered them one of the best 80's bands...and I bought their 2001 record...it was okay...and I'll probably check out this one too...just cause they were cool guys. Alright...let the bashing begin.

Para mí éste disco ha significado un cambio en mi gusto por el deth medal, pues fue el que me introdujo realmente. Es un disco con mucha madurez. Los riffs tocados tienen demasiada técnica y mucha armonía. No lo pienses, es lo que necesitas si quieres que te guste el deth medal!!!!!

Este disco es una gran obra de los maestros Carcass. Es un disco que ha alcanzado un nivel diferente de madurez en el death metal. Gran trabajo técnico en las guitarras. Si quieren escuchar un perfecto death metal sin sonidos atiborrados y estridentes es la mejor elección. Es realmente un monumento éste disco.
