Lead vocalist and guitarist Mark Chapman had the following to say about “Blame”:

“Blame is about problems with the government and big business. Always blaming someone or something else for their greed and misconduct.”

The tracklisting for "Voices In The Dark - Second Attack" is as follows:

1. Intro
2. Voices in the Dark
3. Infected
4. Rebirth
5. Make Me Suffer
6. Lead the Blind
7. Posessed
8. Blame
9. Dark Ritual
10. Waste of Life

When ATTACKHEAD – comprised of Mark Chapman (lead vocals, lead guitar), George Portoulas (lead guitar, backing vocals), Steve Cordero (drums) and Eddie “Munster” Ellis (bass, backing vocals) – put out the original version of “Voices in the Dark” back in February 2008, its songs received airplay on over 50 terrestrial and Internet stations worldwide, from the UK, Canada, Belgium and Greece to Mexico, Germany and Argentina. Attackhead’s intense playing and dark themes have led to sponsorships by Spider Energy Drink, Tsunami Cables, Coffin Case, Fernandes Guitars and Jim Dunlop. Attackhead won Best Artist at the 2010 Street Official Music Awards held in Upland, CA.

Wider distribution of “Voices in the Dark” was a problem, however, until Knoxville, Tennessee based Twisted Hillbilly Records took an interest and funded a higher budget re-recorded version with two new tracks and all new artwork and packaging. Twisted Hillbilly Records is an offshoot of the Twisted Hillbilly magazine series’ metal edition. When the magazine did a short but positive review of the original “Voices in the Dark,” Chapman began talking to label owner Moe Hillbilly, who offered to sign the band for a brand new recording. ATTACKHEAD opted first to take a better crack at the one they had.
