On the band's influences:
"We all grew up on early METALLICA, [IRON] MAIDEN, SLAYER, [JUDAS] PRIEST, and I think AC/DC
and [LED] ZEPPELIN come through pretty strong in our music, too. It's a good time to bring some of that back — hopefully in a new way, though. We don't mind being called a 'prog-rock' band, because that means 'progressive,' you know, taking the music forward. I think you see that with bands like TOOL, THE MARS VOLTA, the DEFTONES and hopefully us."
