Defect Designer has issued the following statement about the band's reaction to news of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray's death:

"Today I opened my Facebook to find out Paul Gray was found dead. Same month as today I was sitting in front of my monitor with mouth open because it was hard to believe Ronnie James Dio passed away. I remember I was reading news about recovery and successful surgery. Even now when I listen to latest records I cannot believe this powerful man is sixty-something years. Charming smile. Planning tours at 67 is a deed!

"Before this Peter Steele passed and it is such a sorrow to listen his unique voice and know this is the end, he has his very last record. Dismal and beautiful his music is. Unbearable. Today again I cannot believe what I see in news blog. I cannot believe it can be true that band member of a band that influenced us so much is no more, that a person who influenced our bass player and probably made him take a bass guitar is gone. Can it be true because this is something that can't fit our minds? Why do our icons die? Why do they start dying?"
