Recording and production

The album was recorded at Cleveland's Spider Studios with producer Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Breaking Point). Wood, who aided in the album's production, said Schigel and Allele's record label gave the band a lot of creative freedom. "He had a lot of great ideas on the vocal stuff. He was easy to work with. He wasn't like, 'It's going to be my way or the highway because I'm the producer,'" Wood said.[9]
