Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas had this to say: "Metal Hammer is proud to see the another crusading Defenders Of The Faith line up take shape on the back of last year's roaring success. We always knew we wanted a heavy lineup, but putting LAMB OF GOD's red blooded riff-fu up against DIMMU BORGIR's black metal from darkest Norway? Brace yourselves."
