What Will Become
Digimortal - This song is very much like Shock with groovy verses, a lot of triplets on the kick drums, and a very melodic chorus.
Linchpin - This song is all about groove. Extremely catchy chorus, this will be the sing-along song for sure. Think of this as Replica meets Martyr.
Invisible Wounds (Dark Bodies) - This song is a lot like Descent, but even catchier. will also be a big sing-along song for sure. But then the middle turns into this extremely heavy Fear Factory mechanical type middle section. Very epic song like Resurrection.
Acres Of Skin - OK, plain and simple If you remember the first song on the Pantera record Far Beyond Driven, than that is what this song is like.
Back The Fuck Up features vocal guest Cypress Hill frontman B-Real
Byte Block - This is probably the most industrial song we've got. It starts out with this killer guitar pattern into a kick drum pattern. Starts kind of like Zero Signal, but it is an alternating kick drum pattern, then breaks into parts of that pattern for the verses, into a straight heavy chorus like New Breed.
Hurt Conveyor - This song is a rock song all the way. The chorus has a Deftones touch to it."

We don't want to be working and the all of a sudden have Limp Bizkit walk in- that could be distracting!" The new album is produced by Rhys Fulber.
