Pretty sure I don't want to hear this farce but curiosity will force my hand sooner or later I guess.

Why would any label endorse this travesty of a line-up?

Maybe it will replace Beehler's "Messages to the Dead" as the worst & worst sold album on High Roller? :)

Looks like a waste of some decent album art. Listen to this tripe:

This song isn't on the album i guess, but i still don't have any hope for it.

The nightmare continues.

What on earth is going on, Russ North is in every other scene of that video, and appears on the line-up at the end, along with the embarrassing Joe Whelan.

I had it in writing from Lee Payne that Russ would not be back in the band "until Hell freezes over"... what ridiculous new chapter is this?

That video is about two years old guys so Russ was still in the lineup when it was put up although he couldn't or wouldn't record vocals on it.

Cool artwork and cool song titles, but I have difficulty believing that anything involving that Joe Whelan will be any good at all. Not that he's the only problem, of course...

Rather the song titles are really "original" :roll:

The cover looks like some concept art from the Darksiders games heh.

In the new ''That's Metal'' there's an interview (mostly very interesting regarding the history of The Hoof) with Lee where he brags about how the new lineup is totally, really the best ever of all times. :shock:

Yeah, but that is so cliche. I mean how many times haven't we all read interviews with bands who feel their new album is their best yet? ;-)

Most of the time when I read that I expect a very subpar album that the band felt they needed to give an extra push so they can sell the desired amount of copies. And it's true 50% of the time in my opinion.
What good is a life that leaves nothing behind, not a thought nor a dream to echo in time...

Well in that he's simply incorrect, no matter how loyal to the band he may be feeling. When I saw them at Metal Wave festival a couple of months ago, when they started playing NOBODY rocked out to them, and I mean nobody, I was watching. People stood watching them, but there was no headbanging. It was cringeworthy.
