"It was either that or 'Strength Beyond Strength' from '‘Far Beyond Driven,'" said Flynn. "In the end, we decided that we wanted to do a classic. We chose 'Fucking Hostile' because it's two and a half minutes of pure, raging metal. It's short, fast and brutal.” "There's some real intricate riffing parts in there," continues Flynn. "We'd jammed it before but we'd never sat down and analyzed it properly. I think we did a great job on it."
