Speaking on Ohms, Moreno said "'Heavy' is kind of subjective, you know? The last thing I ever want to do is be quoted saying, 'This is our heaviest record!' The first thing that’s going to happen is some dude’s going to be like, 'No way dude! This is …' You know what I mean? It’s kind of subjective. But I do feel like it’s got a little more energy. I think that is attributed to everybody being engaged completely. Everybody firing on all cylinders. There’s not one of us individually that was sort of sitting back just going along. Everybody was very present physically and emotionally, ready to work and to put the work in."
