~ We have recently received the following message from veteran cult Black Metal god Christophe Szpajdel:
"I would like to thank you ever so much for the VELONNIC SIN 'Ritual' album, it has been for me a true honour to work for such a high calibre band and i am open to work with more talented bands as CULT OF DAATH and SIN ORIGIN. I always have worshipped and adored the US black metal scene and working in the past with such bands as ABAZAGORATH, KRIEG, DEMONCY, AVERSE SEFIRA has been a true delight for me and i am really looking forward making lots and lots of new contacts. BRINGING Sin Origin and Velonnic Sin to Europe is one of my dreams and i would just adore to realize it. I truly want to tell you, You, guys are BAD ASS!"
