Commented TOURNIQUET: "The titletrack, 'Antiseptic Bloodbath', speaks of theway our society prefers to sanitize brutality. We can have our tidyChristian faith, or continue with no faith at all, as long as wedon't consider the painful bloody price that was paid for us.
"We use animals for our food, profit, and amusement, but wouldrather not know about the needless, often systematic suffering thatis inflicted on them by a callous and greedy humanity. 'Don't upsetmy comfort zone - brutal truth, leave me alone.' The great news isthat we have the ability to choose. This album encourages us tomake good and humane choices in our daily lives that reflect theseimages."
TOURNIQUET's last studio release,2003′s "Where Moth and RustDestroy" (Metal Blade), featuredspecial guest appearances by guitarists MartyFriedman (ex-MEGADETH)and BruceFranklin (TROUBLE).
