The band's guitarist Rob Barrett says:
"I believe that our songwriting has progressed in a manner where every song paves its own path, whether it's a straightforward or technical song. Sometimes it's a mix of both, so there's no preconceived idea that we want to be more technical. The music just sort of takes its own course."
Adds bassist, Alex Webster.
"I don't think there was any conscious effort to make things more technical, so if it wound up that way it would just be a natural result of us trying to write the heaviest songs we could."
Guitarist and producer Erik Rutan says:
"I never go into a record thinking about anything, I just let the writing flow freely with no limitations. But this time, I knew I wanted to push the envelope a bit in a different direction than Violence Unimagined; expand the dynamics, explore new territory without departing from what Cannibal Corpse is and always shall be."
