The band maintains their metalcore sound throughout the album, although the track "Care More" has industrial influence. Artist Direct has also noted sounds influenced by hardcore punk and heavy metal, and Ultimate Guitar described the album as melodic metalcore. The title is an allusion to Romans 8:18.

Critical reception

At Alternative Press, Scott Heisel proclaimed it to be an excellently "solid record". At HM, they affirmed this was "a refreshing work of self-awareness". Alternative Press premiered the album in its entirety via their website on September 10, 2013 to promote the release. Allmusic's Jason Lymangrover said the songs were "more visceral and accomplished than prior outings" and called the title track, Care More, and In Heart as the Allmusic track picks.
