"When the writing process for the new record began, I was going through a pretty rough break up. After the initial heartbreak, I did some soul searching and that's where a lot of the song conceptions for Satori came from," explains I the Mighty vocalist/guitarist Brent Walsh. "The word 'Satori' is actually a Japanese Buddhist term for "awakening" or "enlightenment" which, when we stumbled upon it, just felt right. Not only because it embodies sort of what I went through during the writing process, but because it also carries the message of what the more politically themed songs on the record are all about. Not to mention, it's our debut full length and this album feels more "us" than we have ever felt."

"This is definitely the most straightforward and honest effort lyrically that I've done and I'm very proud of that. Much of our older material, I hid behind the facade of a story or character. The only song on the record that holds true to that older I the Mighty style is "The Frame II: Keep Breathing," which is the prequel to "The Frame III: Sirocco" on Karma Never Sleeps. With the exception of that, the album is almost an open book, self-lead therapy session for myself; sprinkled with the typical politically charged songs of frustration."

These guys are so good. Their last EP was one of my favorites of the year, which I still spin regularly. The way he carries his voice is insane. This is a lot louder and heavier then their old stuff. My only hope is their are some soft gems hidden somewhere in the album. Can't wait. I The Mighty.

Was thinking the same thing. This band doesn't need to scream. Hopefully the pressures of a debut album on a label don't pressure them into going heavier.

And I quite like the screaming, he does well transitioning back and forth. I don't think it's overdone or unnecessary, I think it works as emphasis.

Better than anything they have done before...and I feel the screams fit their place in the song (like he actually wants to scream that lyric instead of just screaming for the sake of screaming).

I like it as well. It's not "screaming" per se, but yelling. Don't mind that.

This sounds a lot less generic than their last release. Oh yeah.

He's not really screaming like "Oh look at me, breaking it down," but more like emotionally yelling, if you catch my drift. Song was great, hopefully the whole CD can be as amazing as Karma Never Sleeps.
