The percussion provided by session/touring musician, Giuseppe Capolupo, provides an intriguing introduction on opening track, Praise Poison, which quickly progresses to more standard metal territory – both with the drums, and guitar rhythms – resulting in a satisfying two-and-a-half minute blast – which aptly enough features lyrics nodding to William Faulkner’s novel, The Sound And The FuryDaughter opens darkly with lead vocalist, Mike Hranica, screaming “over a lifetime/I never loved her/my daughter, my daughter”, and the music’s shifts between solid groove and dissonant squall complements the tracks mood, making it one of the album’s standout songs which happens to juxtapose strongly with the poppy Worldwide which follows it.
