Style

The style of "Back Breaker" has proved to be somewhat a mix of their first two albums. They have returned to the heavier sound of "A Chorus of Obliteration", while still keeping some of the southern elements of "Temptation Come My Way". Lead vocalist Dave Bunton uses harsh screaming, growling, and yelling often, but also mixes in some singing. Drummer AJ Barette utilizes blast beat drumming through much of the album. Bassist Eric Koruschak uses bass riffs that keep the songs feeling low and full, while guitarist Josh Childers uses heavily distorted riffs, with the occasional whining guitar solo. Each of the album's song titles is based on Greek mythology storylines.
