Now we have loads to ship and expectations are very excessive, so I am fortunate to have nice individuals surrounding me. Jared actually stepped up and wrote some nice riffs and nice vocals. Vogg [guitarist Wacław Kiełtyka] contributed just a few concepts and introduced some actually nice songs.”

I have been taking part in a lot guitar lately; I do Electrical Completely satisfied Hours each Friday and generally you play a track you have not performed in 10, 20 years, or undergo a complete album from prime to backside. After we toured ‘Burn My Eyes’, it took me again to the place I used to be writing that music.
