It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
- Epic Riff: "Black," "Praise," "Enemy," and "Prodigal Son."
- The drum riff on "Forever" is insane.
- Face of the Band: Lajon Witherspoon. Though some metalheads think of Morgan Rose as well.
- Growing the Beard: Animosity
- Magnum Opus: Many are considering it to be Black Out the Sun.
- Nightmare Fuel: The "Ugly" music video, where a large crowd of blindfolded people remove their blindfolds, revealing Eyeless Faces.
- Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Morgan Rose is the only alt/nu-metal drummer on metalsucks.net's list of the top 25 best modern metal drummers of all time.
- Tear Jerker: "Angel's Son" and "X-Mas Day." They also premiered a song called 'Blackout' live from their new album to a small audience of fellow metal musicians. It made Joey of Anthrax cry, for god's sake!
- "This Life" is a Heartwarming Tearjerker as it was written about the birth of John Connolly's daughter.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Even haters of nu-metal tend to enjoy their music.
