Like most releases these days, by the time the magical release day comes, and those CD's get stacked on the shelves, the majority of what we're presented with has probably been heard through official teasers, unofficial leaks, session tracks, radio rips and live footage.

Today we're treated to 'The Rifle's Spiral' courtesy of Listen Before You Buy.
