Yeah, that makes sense. I didn't know this was their last album with Roadrunner. But couldn't they have got out of the contract just as easily by releasing a live album or another best of compilation instead of rushing a new album?
With Ellefson being back most fans probably have way bigger expectations than what this album brings.
