“The opening riff for “Talladega” leaves no listener stuck to their chairs as it immediately puts you in the forefront of an intense psychological race. Lyrically, “Talladega” tackles insecurities and internal struggles with oneself that leave your heart racing and relieved by the end. Fast-paced, in-your-face riffs with a transition of soaring vocals and guttural screams will have you banging your head and have you feel the emotion and psychological struggle that goes along with it. This song is a brand new avenue for us and we feel our listeners will greatly appreciate the ride we are about to give them. Buckle up!” – Ventruss
