Their songs are characterized in an anthem style, while their live performances are full of energy, as a result of which they came to be known on the national level also. The band comprises of Marty McCoy, Shaun McCoy, Mike Steele, Jerod Makin, and Tommy Johnson. The members are known for their unique style of songwriting and are often compared new metal artists, including System of Down and Disturbed which is sometimes blended in such a way that shows the lyrical aggression of Wu-tang Clan, who were the pioneers of hip-hop and is also similar to the pioneers of rock and song structural elements as that of Queen.
