"My Name Is Jack" begins with horror movie samples before the old school death metal guitar riffs and drums kick in which leads up to some growls and the music going into a faster direction while also slowing down in certain parts and adding in some melody and halfway through the song high pitched screams are added in and in certain parts you can hear the bass guitars along with some doom metal elements towards the end.
''Burn The Saints" begins with some fast drums, bass and guitar riffs which lead up to some death metal vocals and then the music slows down and starts adding in some melodic elements while also returning to the faster parts at times as well as adding in some screams along with some slow doom metal style riffing and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads being utilized.
