The authenticity they've got, the power they transport and said magic they create can't be put in words. It's pretty much the most beautiful and timeless music - it touches you. We at Nuclear Blast are extremely proud that both the band's and our hard work has paid off! I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the entire team, all the supporters, the booking agencies and of course the band's management for making this one a real pleasant and exciting campaign .
