Their guitarist, Andrew Hawkins issued a statement about the upcoming release for Decibel Magazine: “Our goal has always been to make death metal that’s raw while also pushing boundaries and not shying away from being forward-thinking… “We’ve never aimed to have our records sound perfect, which adds to the chaotic ‘live’ feel we’re looking to achieve. I always look at older Cryptopsy as the ideal mix between technicality and chaos — records like Whisper Supremacywalk the line between incredible precision and an insane, unhinged feel. The ‘earthiness’ of the artwork and lyrics fit into this idea, too. We want the overall package — music, artwork, lyrics, production — to be primal, dirty, and alien.” Andrew also explained the idea behind Abstracted Mind: “This song has one riff in particular — the ‘staggering’ riff about halfway through — that we set out to make as disorienting as possible… The way we wrote that part was a lot different than our usual approach. Jason originally came up with a drum beat that really threw me for a loop. I wrote the guitar riff on top of that, and then he wrote a new drum beat on top of that riff. We had to really break that part down to get it ready for recording. I remember us spending multiple practices working out the transition into that part. It really caused our heads to hurt after a while, hah. But we don’t ever want to feel like a part is ‘too much’ of anything so as to prevent us from using it. If it works within the context of the song, we’re going to roll with it.”
