2001-08-30 - RECALL ACTION!!!!

DESTRUCTION

Nobody can stop The Antichrist!

During the production of the new album, The Antichrist, so many things went wrong that it could have easily endangered the release date. It was a nightmare. Does this have something to do with the album title? A conspiracy perhaps? You decide.

Here are the facts:

The cardboard boxes of the limited edition first pressing were printed in BROWN instead of BLACK and a few hundred of them were totally smeared. How many? 666 pieces to be exact. No joke! Also, the track order was changed. Instead of the original opening track “Thrash ’til Death,” song number four, “Dictators of Cruelty,” opens this thrash inferno! The CDs were already shipped to the stores when we noticed these mistakes.

Then the printing company delivered the t-shirt with the album cover design in BLOOD RED instead of the original FULL COLOR design. This is what they call Murphy’s Law!

Delaying the release of The Antichrist was not an option. Because of this extremely rare run of mistakes, this limited edition is sure to become a collector’s item; however, those who want to exchange their first pressing should send their CD to the following address:

Nuclear Blast GmbH
Attn: Destruction
Oeschstrase 40
73072 Donzdorf
Germany

In addition to receiving a mistake-free copy of The Antichrist, all those who return their CD will be rewarded with a small surprise (photo card with signatures, poster, etc.), but it is up to the fans to decide which version they want to have! Sorry, but shit happens! In spite of all this, the quality of the album remains killer. THRASH ’TIL DEATH!!!!

DESTRUCTION

Der"Antichrist" ist nicht zu stoppen!

Es scheint wie ein Alptraum, aber im Vorfeld des neuen Albums "The Antichrist"
passierten Dinge, welche die Veröffentlichung extrem gefährdeten. Ob dies am Albumtitel liegen sollte? Verschwörung ?

Hier die Fakten:

-der Pappschuber der lim. Erstauflage wird braun anstelle von schwarz gedruckt!
-einige hundert davon sind total verschmiert. Wie viele? Genau 666 Stück - kein Scherz!
-die Tracklist wird vertauscht, anstelle des eigentlichen Openers "THRASH `TIL DEATH" eröffnet Song Nr. 4 "DICTAORS OF CRULTY" das Thrash Inferno!
-das T- Shirt mit dem Albumcover wird blutrot anstatt farbig wie geplant von der Druckerei angeliefert!
-die CD´s sind schon auf dem Weg in die Läden als diese Fehler bemerkt werden! Das nennt man wohl Murphys Law!

Es wäre für die Band und die Fans auch keine Lösung gewesen den Release zu stoppen.
Da so etwas aber sehr selten passiert, steigert dies natürlich auch den Sammlerwert
dieser limitierten Erstauflage. Wer seine Erstauflage trotzdem umtauschen will, sollte
seinen Silberling an folgende Adresse schicken:

Nuclear Blast
att.DESTRUCTION
Oeschstr. 40
73072 Donzdorf
Germany

Die Band entschädigt alle Einsender mit einer kleinen Überraschung ( Autogrammkarte,
Poster etc...), so kann sich jeder Fan selbst für eine Variante entscheiden!
Sorry - but Shit happens! Der Qualität des Hammeralbums tut dies jedoch keinen
Abruch in diesem Sinne THRASH `TIL DEATH!!!
