Travesty

Album: Attack of the Wolf King (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Christian metalcore band Haste The Day's fifth album, Attack of the Wolf King. Guitarists Dave Krysl and Scotty Whelan explained to AntiMusic how the song was written: "Like most songs on Attack of the Wolf King, 'Travesty' was written almost entirely on a computer. It started with the intro riff and a few others Scotty recorded on Garageband during some time off, then when we all got together we picked it apart and the structure came together so fluidly. We would continue recording guitar parts for the song and then Giuseppe would program in some sick drum parts and really bring the song to life. This song was written fairly quickly and the more it came together, the more excited we got about how powerful and big the song was turning out to be. We all love it."
