    We attempted a cover once, but realized there's no point messing with something already crystallized.

    When this rekkid came out I was blown away...as usual. You never know what Ton's gonna do.

    The line, "crows as big as airplanes" is eerily compelling and completely captures the scene one might experience during the end of humanity. Scary stuff.

    I'm waiting for Tom to sue Fantastic Negrito for ripping off his melody for that chorus. FN is a really good group and they make wonderful original music, but the guitar riff in the chorus here is a bit too close to be a co-inky-dink:
