Neil Turbin stated, "The new song 'Never Surrender' combines power, melody, neoclassical and thrash in a way that I didn't have the opportunity to sing like I did on Fistful of Metal and Armed and Dangerous. I can't wait for everyone to hear our new album, the album is so diverse, there are many tracks leaning on the thrash side but there are also many tracks which are melodic and technical as well. DeathRiders packs a punch with a brilliant team of high precision players."
Neil Turbin sang on ANTHRAX's debut LP, 1984's "Fistful Of Metal" wrote on Armed and Dangerous, Spreading the disease as well as participated on Anthrax's 40 year anniversary celebration Web series providing commentary into the bands history.
