Not really. I just write what I write.
I was afraid for a long time that young people would be upset if there wasnt anything really aggressive on AS, but realized that if im going to stay true to myself i have to really try to evolve and be original and not force any sounds that arent coming out naturally out of fear of what people think.
I think a lot of bands are making the same records over and over to feed a fan base thats narrow minded, and wants to hear what they want to hear although they dont realize it. Most of you arent this way, and im so grateful to have fans that are as creative and open minded as you are.
Honestly though, this was the heaviest, shreddiest, jammiest record ive ever done. I knew some people wouldn’t get it, im glad most of you do.
