The following press release was also issued about the EP:
"Skynet, the next big metal act to come out of Hamilton. With the hype off their debut video 'Deception,' the boys from Skynet went to Plain City, Ohio to record their debut 6 song EP with Dan Smoldt at URC Studios, and guitarist Adrian Levasseur as producer. They entered the studio drunk, and without distraction, to deliver the most raw and brutal album possible. Straight Reads the Line alumni Blake Prince and Adrian Levasseur’s songwriting shine over this album. Talented is something that more than describes Pete Chernets and Fraser Stephenson, their technical skill will astound and atrophy. Skynet’s debut EP will make you listen again and harder. They are ready to wreck your city on the Blind Witness' farewell tour and continue to rule the road this summer/fall."
