An internet rumor circulated stating that lyrics on the first track, "Skynet", were written about the band Emmure and how they have allegedly ripped off The Acacia Strain, although vocalist Vincent Bennett has denied this on stage numerous times. Regardless, Emmure responded to plagiarism claims in their song "R2DEEPTHROAT".
