Jonathan Davis told The Pulse of Radio
that The Serenity of Suffering
album title describes his tortured relationship with suffering, which makes him feel safe and serene. "I feel like sometimes I'm in that place so much, I feel serenity when I'm there," he explained. "That's where I feel comfortable, when I'm down. And I think people who have ever battled depression and stuff like that, it's not enjoyable, but that kind of feeling you can relate to."
