Ludichrist celebrated the release with a performance at the annual Black N' Blue Bowl 2014 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Vocalist, Tommy Christ, stated, "Thirty years after we first started, our two albums have been re-released and we got to celebrate the event with a 1,000 plus friends, old and new, at the Black N' Blue Bowl! Those albums have been hard find for a long time, and it's pretty cool that they're back. I may even buy a copy."

Hailing from New York in the early 1980's, Ludichrist was one of the preeminent bands bridging the gap between metal and hardcore. Behind two full-length albums and global touring, it didn't take long for the band to cement itself as a legendary act in the most important decade ever for hardcore/metal music.
