In the meantime the band wins the Metal Bash 2000, which is organized by hard rock magazine Aardschok.
In January the band plays at the Noorderslag festival. In April their self-released debut album 10 Ways To Hate comes out and receives favourable reviews. Especially the growling vocals and the dynamics of the songs are praised.
