In Their Words: "I remember hearing what would be 'Caustic' for the first couple of times as a demo. It didn't have any bass, the drums were quickly programmed and didn't have any life, and the structure of the transitions kind of felt a little forced. But the song had all the right ingredients and the riffs made such an impact when I began to write the words for it without fail. So once we brought the tune to the rehearsal stage we threw all those ingredients into a bowl and made a pretty cake." – Rus Martin (vocals)
