According to Ball in an interview with Decibel, Ball said he had the idea to do this a while ago but never figured out how to execute it.

"Fifteen years ago, I lived in Edmonton, and I was playing in a hardcore band. I’ve thought about doing this that far back. But my original ideas were a little bit different – I thought about doing it in a grindcore way," he said.

"That shifted, and I think the sound we ultimately went with suited the material better. I’ve been listening to a lot of black metal, which seems to fit the material. A grindcore approach would be blast beat heavy. The way we did it, we kept the blast beats to a minimum."
