Falling In Hate

Album: War Is The Answer (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented to Metal Hammer: "You could call this the equivalent of 'Meet The Monster' from the first album – a heavy, grinding, nasty riff, greasy and aggressive." He added: "In rehearsals, we were playing the song in a more measured way, but that gave it too much of a 'doomy' quality, which we didn't really want. However, the moment we speeded it up a bit, everything fell into place. The only trouble was, the breakdown section in the middle already featured a double-time riff, so once we decided to quicken the pace, it made that section even harder to play! I think it's the ugliest breakdown I've ever heard!"
  • Bathory joked to Kerrang!: "I think that more than anything this song taught us that before we write and record in future we need to hook Ivan [Moody, vocals]' up with a really dysfunctional chick, because it seems to bring the best out of him on almost every level."
