"Our new album is designed to make you move and to move you," says Eckerström. "We destroyed all doubt with 'Valley of Disease.' We blew the competition off the mountain with 'Dance Devil Dance.' Now the world is ours, and yours with us. The stage is set all that's left to do is give in and join the circus. This is 'The Dirt I'm Buried In.' You are welcome."
