Scott Wilson comments on each song on the album One (2006):
- This song has a lot of riffs I wrote kinda off the cuff. Like
just fuckin around at practice. We would do that a lot
fuck around and see if anything good would come out of anybody. I tend
to write really fast simple riffs a lot. But for the most part this thing
just came together from fuckin around. I'm ok at comin up with a good
riff, but when it comes to arranging shit I need all the help I can get.
The Slayerish breakdown riff in the middle of the song was some shit I
came up with along time ago and we had actually used it for a song on
the old demos already. But we didn't like that song anymore for the full
but we still liked that riff
so we kinda stole it from
ourselves and put it in Repentagram. This song turned out to be one of
my favorites. Its just so in your face. And its fun as fuck to play live.
And the ending kills.
Divine - We wrote this fucker along time ago. I actually like
it better on the old demo. What can you do though. We had to rerecord
it and it just didn't come out as cool as we all thought it would. Whatever
though. I still think it's a quality song. Its got a few of my favorite
riffs on there. This was another one that kinda came together from fuckin
around. I had some riffs at home that I'd been fuckin around with and
we just got together and pieced it together. Theres a real driving chorus
riff in there that I love. Chris wrote that. It's a good hair whipper
of a riff.
Idol - This one was written, for the most part, by Chris and Ben
at Chris's house. They just came together with all these riffs and the
shit was killer. They pretty much had it arranged too. This one and withdrawal
went through a lot of changes before they became what they are today.
We would change them like once a month until they felt right. This is
the one we shot the video for. The guys at Metal Blade really liked this
one. The Lyric are kinda based on a character Nate made up that doesn't
have anything, but feels he is better off then the materialistic fuckers
because he doesn't have shit to lose.
Obscene - I think Chris and Nate were really the master minds behind
this one. We called it the trucker song for a long time. I love how it
goes into this insane vocal/solo/vocal/solo back and forth type shit towards
And The Infection - We wrote this one to keep the album diverse
kinda. We wanted a slower kinda driving tough ass song in there to mix
it a up a little. In practice I kinda just thought this song was ok. But
when we recorded it and I heard the vocals and everything, it became one
of my favorites. It really took shape in the studio. And it builds up
so well throughout the whole song.
Up (Out For Blood) - This one is the party song. A little country
metal shit happening in here somehow. This has another break down sorta
riff in there that we originally used on a different song back in the
day. Again, we really didn't feel like that song belonged on the full
length and it was never used for anything else
.So we stole from
ourselves again. This song took like one practice to put together. Really
The Leader - Nate wrote most of this song. And I think me and Chris
kinda put together some shit for the ending parts. This song is awesome
cuz its so fast with all the blast beats and shit. I think this is the
one song that is Bush related. Kind of a big fuck you to all the underhanded
shit that is going on in the U.S.
- This is another oldie. I really cant remember how this song came about.
I remember Nate really had to talk me into the chorus riff though. I really
wasn't into it at first. But I think he was right. And it turns out to
be a lot of peoples favorite song. Nate and I kinda battle a lot on riffs
and shit. But I think its good for the band to do that shit though. If
it was just me writin riffs the whole album would sound the exact same.
Every song would be the same song
and I wouldn't realize it until
the whole album was recorded and done.
Serve Is To Destroy - This beauty is all Ben Parrish. I think he
was listening to too much Pantera at the time and wrote this bad motherfucker.
I love this song. And the ridiculous breakdownish riff at the end is fuckin
brilliant. This is one of the few songs that doesn't have any solos. I
always vote for the solo on every song
But this one doesn't need
it. And if it did have one it would probably sound real forced. I guess
there is that real slow soloish thing at the end there
but I don't
really consider that a solo really.
- Fast fuckin shit. I wrote a lot of this song. Nate wrote the
killer chorus riff though. But again we all kinda arranged the shit. I
love the crazy turn it takes at the end. I love shit like that
you can switch things up in such a crazy way but it still sounds like
the same song you know?
Am Weapon - This is our punk song. Simple fuckin riffing. And then
all the sudden you get this ridiculous chunky riff over blast beats. I
think Nate and Chris kinda put this one together. Again, no solo on this
one. I love the lyric on this one " Every war starts with you and
MOTHERFUCKER!!!!" that shit gets me everytime.
- This song is fuckin crazy. There are a lot of fuckin twists and
turns in this one. Yet it still keeps a kind of structure to it. To me
this is like our masterpiece I think. I love all the bullshit in the middle
of it. All kinds of crazy soloing and shit. This is the fuckin song that
is for all the raging metal motherfuckers that have partied with us over
the years. Its just about fuckin goin off with your friends. This is another
one that is fun as fuck to play live.
