Ingested (Sean Hynes [guitar], Sam Yates [guitar], Lyn Jeffs [drums]) explain why they aren't exactly a slam band, likening themselves to Dying Fetus, who also have slam parts between technical, fast bits of death metal. They call the slow, breakdown-esque parts a tool for songwriting, rather than an "all-encompassing mantra," mixed in with more black metal parts, death metal parts and more: "extreme metal's greatest hits" of 'The Level Above Human.' They also discuss the divisive nature of deathcore, the joy they find in being reviewed on YouTube and people splitting hairs on brutal music when, in the end, "we are nearly 30-year-old men making monster noises, playing as fast as possible." Interview conducted May 15 in Toronto when the band were on tour with Signs of the Swarm and Bodysnatcher, ahead of their appearance on the "Devastation on the Nation Tour."
