Added DiffLines:

* AlbumTitleDrop: A rare example of one located ''outside'' the album: "The Vision" contains the lyrics "All the waters of the earth turn to blood."


Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: This gets brought up a lot. ''I Shall Die Here'' contains multiple speech samples drawn from suicide hotlines.


Added DiffLines:

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: "The Vision", which draws heavily from the Book of Revelation. There's a pretty apocalyptic theme to ''All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood'' as well.


Added DiffLines:

** "The Vision" isn't even remotely a metal song, instead being a gospel/folk song that slowly devolves into creepy dark ambient.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBeard: Both Chip and Lee sport some epic whiskers.


Added DiffLines:

* NobodyLovesTheBassist: The band doesn't even bother with a bassist.
