An excerpt from vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott’s interview with New Noise is as follows:
“We had some extra time in the studio, and we wanted to do something people weren’t expecting at all,” he explains. “No one expects me to do a lot of clean vocals or expects us to be influenced by a doom metal band with operatic vocals, but we definitely are. I think people were surprised, but we played it for a couple of people and they liked it, so we decided to go for it.”
