As long as production is better than Heretic ill be happy. Yeungs a beastly drummer so thatyll be interesting to hear. Haven't heard who's producing; but Covenant being my personal favorite ;I wish they'd bring in Flemming again. Looking forward to it anyways

It's been too long! Anyone know what the latin translation is? Something like that insane god.. maybe a reference to Lovecraft's Azathoth from which Trey took his last name. Anyway, can't wait!

YES! The Blessed Beast is back. \m/ One of my all-time favorite bands. To say I've been looking forward to this album would be an understatement! Hel, I'd buy a new CD player and leave it open JUST for the release of this title.
