All that remains a war you cannot win


The album was produced by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, who has produced albums for the band in the past.

The first song to be released from the album was "Down Through the Ages". The song was first posted to Labonte's YouTube channel on August 13, 2012. "Stand Up" was released as the next single on August 27. On October 26, "You Can't Fill My Shadow" was announced as the album's third single.

Musical style

Drummer Jason Costa stated about the album: "This is a very guitar, very melody-oriented album. It wasn't very rhythm-based at all. I would just say it's metal; it's a metal album. We've got some heavy songs on there, some heavy, groovy songs on there. We've got some fast, heavy songs on there, we've got some more radio-friendly, melodic songs on there. It's typical ALL THAT REMAINS, really, but we've definitely stepped up the musicianship there and the writing."
