"Dear fans
The recording of the long awaited D.O.D. debut album it's still on the way, two new songs are still being recorded and lot of shit is still being re-recorded. I wished I could go faster, but since I am just alone with every aspect of this and since I do other shit besides music, I can't put out on music all the time I would desire. The album will be finished for the age of late February / March 2004, initially distributed by two recording companies in South America and later in some points of USA an Europe.
As always I want to thank you all for all the constant support I receive for the Dawn Of Defiance's project"
