Commented guitarist John Dones: "We were approached by a distribution company in PR and was offered a deal to re-master our demos and re-release a compilation-type CD. I guess according to the buzz we are considered a legendary band in PR and pioneers of thrash in the Caribbean. All the newbies have been asking for this release for quite some time now, so we will deliver them a nice souvenir.

"The CD is most of our music compiled into one recording. We've remastered the 'Querer es Poder' demo but just were able to clean up tape recordings of our other demo/songs (poor quality but clear enough for the avid fan). We've included live versions of unreleased songs like 'The Great Tribulation' and 'Pinnacle of Ignorance'. We've included a recount of the history of the band inside the CD jacket among never released photos as well."

The CD can be ordered directly from Khaosmaster Productions in Puerto Rico at this address:
