♣   "Man is a Monster is a collection of songs from a period of two years during which I traveled more than I ever had before, spending time in countries, most of which, I had never visited. The songs were conceived in that spirit of exploration, in a global sense, but also of our musical and technical abilities. This album's eclectic sound is an indication of the many inuences and experiences of the group, as well as our intent to
take the emphasis away from traditional 4/4 rhythms and channel those inuences into something deeper and more challenging than our previous work." — Will Rast
