“I’m not big on sports myself, but mixed martial arts is one of the few I genuinely like to watch” states vocalist Peter Tuthill. “As You Bleed was actually inspired by a UFC match I was watching one night. I can't relate to violence, and it's not how I see solving any problems, but as long as it's inside an octagon, I'm all for it.” Despite features three guitarists, each playing technically-crushing riffs on eight-stringed Schecter guitars tuned a full octave below standard guitar tuning (drop-e).
