Nobody gives a fck about your vocal cover. I talk shit too. Looking forward to this release though... provided it's actually thrash.

yea who gives a shit about a seminal thrash band?

Okay, yea, they've had a few weak releases over the years, but the Gathering was sick, as was Formation. Stoked for this.

They are old though.
