What was your highlight of 2008?
S: Getting Order Of Ennead up and running.
K: It was a great year. We signed to Earache in May, recorded our debut at Audio Hammer in June. We got to share the stage with Deicide, Hate Eternal, Municipal Waste and Adrift. And our second album is already in the demoing stages, so we were very productive this year.

What is your funniest tour story of 2008?
K: Scott, while in Italy, was so smashed. He just laid his backpack down and then immediately started asking where it was. Later he passed out and Glen Benton started taking pics of him. The guy looked like a corpse he was so out of it. Jack Owen is hilarious as well.
