It is the band's first live album in almost a decade and is the last to feature long-time Slaughter And The Dogs drummer Noel Kay. It was rdistributed on CD and special limited edition colored vinyl. The new live album contains 16-tracks, beginning with the high-powered energy of "I Got Your Number" and their cover of the New York Dolls' "Who Are The Mystery Girls." The set list features many Slaughter And The Dogs' classics like "Hell In New York," "We Don't Care" and "Boston Babies." They also perform two cover songs from one of their favorites bands, The Velvet Underground ("I'm Waiting For My Man" and "White Light White Heat"). They save their classics for the end as they get the crowd riled-up for the raw, punk fury of "Where Have All The Boot Boys Gone?" and "Cranked Up Really High."

American heavy metal band SOiL is celebrating the band's 20th anniversary with a new 20-track "best of" release titled "SCREAM: The Essentials."

The set also features the band's first single "Halo," which helped establish SOiL as one of the premier underground hardcore rock acts in America. The set also includes some special additions like an acoustic version of "Can You Heal Me" and an alternate version of "Like It Is." Fellow metal artist Wayne Static (Static-X) lends a hand on the explosive "Give It Up" and the song "Shine On" showcases how the band has grown over the last two decades. SOiL will be hitting the road in another week with dates line-up all the way into February of 2018.
