New album looks cool though. Hopefully I can get into it more than Deceiver of the Gods.

I'd be interested in seeing them live, even if Dallas is about two and a half hours away with traffic from where I live. :lol2:

Oh and Kreator's drummer shared lead singer duties with Mille on the first three albums.

If you hate an integral part of every band's rhythm section so much, why do you even listen to metal? You're probably just trying to be an edgelord, so trying to reason with you is a waste of time, effort and innocent
little baby animals.
