"The Price," a new song from Day Of Reckoning, has been posted on the band's MySpace page . States Schmier: "This song expresses the spirit of Day Of Reckoning at its best: faster, more raw, and tighter. One of my favorite tracks on the album because you can feel the fire and the joy of playing! The band feels the old-school aggression again and this song is like a rocket: UN-FUCKIN-STOPPABLE!"
