Oddly enough Daniel Badge of Mutiny Within saw my Dissapointments of 2013 post on my facebook and posted the following:
I agree with the MW comment completely. It was Chris's decision to release the album (of demos) and it had very little input from me and Brandon as technical guitarists. I was given a couple days to do solos. only input i was given. My name is on it, but did you ever really see me promote it? Nope. MW first album was true MW. Glad you still loved that one and enjoyed seeing us live!
This explains so very very much!
