but it's just not what I'm into.
I'm not into rap metal.

personally.
- Jon Crosby

The two records are very different.

more the way I wanted to feel.
- Jon Crosby

number of people as possible,

a major label because my music is different.

Because I've been doing this for years and years.
I'd like to just step out and try something different.

bad to say about them at all.

when the single came out and that's much different.
