> Blabbermouth.net posted the following statement from SUIDAKRA:
“After [the band’s appearance at the] Wacken [Open Air festival in early August] we will stagger into the Gernhart Studio to record some old SUIDAKRA tracks and re-master the newer ones for a ‘best-of’ compilation. This album will be released together with a live DVD containing the Wacken 2006 show, the acoustic show at the Kielowatt Festvial 2006 and various other video clips. This fine package will be complimented graphically with artwork by Kris Verwimp, so this will surely be a must-have for every SUIDAKRA fan, and fans of the future!”
