Background[edit]

Commented Dying Fetus guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher: "The last album had some groove in it, but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older Fetus albums, so to speak — more modern production, though, of course. Everything's tight, the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing."
