I guess this could just as easily go in the Peplum category, but it's Bava, so...

Will it be English friendly?  I couldn't tell from the details listed on Koch's page.

Koch's own website only lists German as being the spoken language, unfortunately.  They do include English subtitles.  I hope that the English language track will be added before this disc is pressed.  Does anybody have an opinion about the quality of Koch discs?

Koch does fine work, if they get a good source the Blu will be great.

English audio would add considerable expense to their overhead, 
and they have no incentive to add English audio to a region locked Blu.

I would also expect the English subtitles to be so so.

If there is a new master available, it will absolutely be licensed for English audiences.
Koch got KILL BABY KILL first as well, subsequently followed by Arrow & Kino.
Expect the same here.

I don't think that the Koch will have English as an audio option.  A Tim Lucas audio commentary track is planned--hopefully that will be in English!

Meanwhile, I hear that Kino has announced Bava's KNIVES OF THE AVENGER for January.

Great news, I am sure Herc will be coming to America soon.

If Lucas is doing a commentary its bound to be in English and I can't see that they will put out the film in German with an English commentary without the original English soundtrack

I'm told that the English dub track may not be available to Koch for technical reasons.
