“We are truly blown away by the fantastic reactions, the metal fans have given us since the album came out! 
Those official chart entries are now of course the little cherry on the pie.
In the long history of the band we never had better chart results than for BORN TO PERISH. On a side note many other great results like the #2 in JAPAN on the DISC UNION charts are also worth to be mentioned I think. This is fantastic and we appreciate the loyalty as a true blessing!
Thanks to all our faithful fans worldwide for the backing up & the support, they prove since more than 35 years that THRASH METAL is hard to kill and will survive all bloody trends! And we wanna thank the people behind the scenes involved in this record as well, especially our label NUCLEAR BLAST, that I consider not just a business partner, we are working with friends! YOU ROCK OUR WORLD!!!”
