"I was thinking at the time that the first prototype would probably be so far off that the process would take years,” Gelotte told Epiphone
. “I couldn't have been more wrong. The prototype is my new No.1! It's what I played since I got it! Every show. I am very happy to say the least...We are, and have always been, a melodic based Metalband. How other people want to categorize us has changed over the years, from Death Metal to Rock. It never really bothered or limited us musically since we kind of do whatever we want. It might sound arrogant but that is the truth: you simply can't cater to the whole world or anyone outside the band. That would mean compromising on our way of music and that--to me--would be selling out."
