That's like getting your knickers in a twist for every release on the date Hitler became Chancellor of the Reich or his birthday or the day they started shipping people off systematically or the day of the 2nd WW, or the day anyone of the American presidents got shot or American civilians were killed.

Yeah it's being released on 9/11, what's the big deal, like nothing else can happen that day. Maybe it's meant to commemorate that day and what can be learned from it. To live your life spreading as much love as possible, not hate. You only get one chance and you don't know when you're gonna go. That's pretty much everything that Converge stands for.

It's less about the deaths and more about the shock of a rich country, seemingly safe and removed from any war or trouble, getting two of its most famous towers in its most well known city hit by aeroplanes and demolished in the middle of a normal day.

3000 deaths is a lot for a single terrorist attack though.
Although the way in which some Americans seem to take personal offence from it is pretty annoying.
