    Liked previous album a lot more, but new one is still awesome.

    I'm not going to lie. I really prefer the censored album art. I feel like the uncensored cover looks a tad too much on the nose. I feel like the censored rendition is more mysterious and has this foreboding vibe to its presentation.

    Fazla uzatmayacağım. Albümü 3-5 kere dinledim. Beğenmemek değil ama TAIM işi gibi gelmedi pek yani Hate 'de ki ortalığın amına koruz mavrasını veremedi bana. Daha çok biz daha ciddiyiz mavrasını verdi. Bu grup cidden sevdiğim bir grup ama Hate kesinlikle Holy War 'dan iyiydi.

    People trying to silence others for not liking what they have to say is always pretty amusing. One does not have to be an author to judge a book.
