Finally Staind is recording what they call their heaviest album in a long time.  No "Outside" or "It's Been Awhile" on this one.  Heavy and loud.

Lewis described the record as "the heaviest record or collection of songs we have written in a long time. There's no 'Outsides', no 'It's Been Awhiles', no 'Right Heres', anything like that. It's straightforward and heavy . . . the songs I used to bring on the mellower side will now be the embodiment of my solo career, and STAIND can stick to doing the heavier things."
