Read a excerpt from the interview below as well as check out a link to the full interview after the jump. If you do not own White Pony, do not go any further until you do. It, like the album here, are definitely two great albums from that year as is Glassjaw's Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence (also featured in AP 266).
Moreno on the tension between himself and Carpenter in regard to it shaping the album:
"Now that I look back on it, that’s kind of what we were doing so we were just building this project without knowing what we were doing, and I think that’s why it sticks out as far as being one of our most dynamic records. You have super-heavy, aggressive songs like “Elite,” and you also have songs like “Digital Bath,” which is the opposite side of the spectrum, but equally as big-sounding. That’s where we really started to hone in on those dynamics and really bring them to the forefront."
