Metal/hardcore legend Billy Milano joined Exhorder for a performance of the classic S.O.D. song "United Forces" in Austin, Texas on April 16th. "United Forces" appeared on S.O.D.'s 1985 crossover classic "Speak English or Die." Short for Stormtroopers of Death, the now defunct S.O.D. was a a thrash/crossover super group featuring Scott Ian and Charlie Benante of Anthrax, Danny Lilker of Nuclear Assault, and Billy Milano of M.O.D.

The April 16th show was one of three dates scheduled on Exorder's mini-tour. The recently reunited Exhorder played Fort Worth, Texas, at The Rail Club the night before and left Austin for their New Orleans, Louisiana performance at The Hangar scheduled for the following night. Texas thrashers Rigor Mortis joined Exhorder on the two Texas dates.

The Austin show was Jorge Caicedo's second show as bassist for Exhorder. Caicedo filled the vacancy left by recently deceased Frankie Sparcello. Sparcello's cause of death has yet to be determined.
