The somber vibe of Extremist
tracks like this one and "Hell Don't Need Me
" call upon Demon Hunter's specific brand of ballad. However vocalist Ryan Clark considers that they also introduce, for the first time, a certain element of slow doom that the band haven't really explored in the past. He told Decibel
magazine: "In short, they're slow and brooding, but with heavy, usually muted guitar riffs that cut through, and slower, darker chord progressions."
"The cadence is a little looser than what I usually end up writing," Clark added. "It feels different to me, and I like that. The chorus melody is in a lower register than the rest of the vocals, which is also unordinary for us, but nevertheless, I think it feels like the 'biggest' part of the song, which is ultimately the most important thing for me."
