According to band leader, Carl Morrison, the production time of the album was spread over nearly a year not because of the complexity of the songs, but because of personal problems on the parts of the band members, such as the amputation of Anthony Groy's, the drummer's, right arm and the mysterious theft of many of Shaun Makore's guitars.

"It was like fate didn't want us to release this album. But we went on, struggling against all the odds, and we made it. We really showed fate, huh?" - Devon Grohl, band member

Critical ReceptionEdit

"I'm not sure I'll be able to look at music the same way after sitting through the torture of this album. Its only redeeming feature is that it has no redeeming features, so at least it's not frustrating." - Mossy Stone Magazine

"The cover art is pretty." - Deaf Bob (of Deaf Bob's Review Site)
