RockmusicRaider - Delirium's Order - Singularity - Album Cover Do you want to learn the bitter truth? This record is a headbanging disaster.

So, to all of you fans of the extended moshpit, you need to restrain yourselves. If you try too hard, then your mutual heads just might fall off and roll into a corner. And then what?

Try to grope your way about the music hall to retrieve it? When you only see a portion of the floor. That’s gonna be fun, right?
