Double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album from the groove metal band, their first in six years. It is the first album after the Randy Blythe manslaughter case and a brief hiatus after finishing the Resolution touring cycle. Randy Blythe stated that people shouldn't expect a prison record, instead he will "write about things that affect me very deeply", which are going to prison in a foreign country and being charged with manslaughter, as stated by Blythe. The album's subtitle, literally translated as Storm and Stress, indirectly refers to Blythe's experience. Blythe says he and Mark Morton were talking about how the record's theme relates to the psychology of humans reacting under extreme conditions, and they wanted a word that reflected such situations.
