The European version contains one newly recorded exclusive bonus track entitled “If The Truth Hurts…Suffer,” as well as exclusive art work and other bonus materials.

In related news, Webber and his former bandmates in Skinless recently announced a special one-off performance together on June 19th at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, New York. Featuring the classic lineup that helped rearrange the face of death metal with their soul-crushing Progression Towards Evil and Foreshadowing Our Demise full-lengths (1998 and 2001 respectively), Webber, drummer Bob Beaulac, guitarist Noah Carpenter and bassist Joe Keyser are once again prepared to pummel. Co-headlining the show will be Burning Human featuring Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner. Support will come from Wasteform, Israfel and Circle Nine. For more info, check out: http://www.myspace.com/skinless. In addition, Webber will be tracking guest vocals on the upcoming Cephalic Carnage record. Further details TBA.
“An admissibly ferocious, hate-filled and avenging band who have confidently taken control of their own fate… This is a hard-hitting metal release which more than deserves to be check out on its own accord.” — Decibel
“…deranged and technically-meticulous death metal for outcasts and non-believers with a discerning taste for standout extreme music.” — Hard Times
“Webber’s deceptive vocal power is on display for all five tracks making for a self-released effort that blows away almost all self-released efforts and is on par with anything on major labels. But with the sort of experience contained in this band and one of death metal’s best front men back in the fray, what would you expect?” — Metal Review
