The structure of this song is a bit more complex that most of the others on Extremist. Vocalist Ryan Clark explained to Decibel magazine: "There are a couple points in the song that stray from what's most typical for us. The verse segment plays with an interesting time signature, which is a little different for us. And the title of the song is actually heard in the pre-chorus, as opposed to the chorus, which is the only example of this on the record."
The song's vibrant melodic death metal sound highlights the influences of Swedish bands like At The Gates, In Flames and Soilwork. Clark told Decibel: "There's a delicate balance of ferocity and melody in these bands, whether it's in the music or the vocal — or both — that to me, is unrivaled in most other sub-genres."
