The Dying Light album was heavy metal destiny if there ever
was such a thing. I met Lino when I was in San Francisco with
Enemy Soil for Fiesta Grande in 1997. We were all hanging out
at their hotel, and he and I started talking metal and have been
friends ever since.
When he and Joey, Brandon D, Brandon T, and Eddie got this band
together, there was no question it was going to destroy. All of
these guys had been in raging bands, and this was the culmination
of years of experience creating extreme music. From the minute
I heard the first demo I told Lino if he ever wanted to do a vinyl
with me it was done. So when they recorded this album last summer
in Florida with Eric Rutan (from Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal),
we decided to do the vinyl version on Outlaw.
The cover art is different to that used on the CD. I went over
to Lino's place and we chose these from the work he'd done. The
test pressings of this come in hand screened sleeves that we also
made at his place one Saturday afternoon... the gang all got together
and did it. They look mega-cult, but there's only 10.
I can't put to words how proud I am of how this album has come
out. Pat D did an amazing job as usual laying it out, and though
this thing was almost 9 months in the making, I think it was worth
the wait. The end result is devastating. To me this is "Reign
In Blood" for the new millenium.
Staten Island Street Metal rules.
