"The Paradigm Shift" also marks the studio return of guitarist Brian "Head" Welch

to ask him a few questions on the behalf of UG community.
"I mean we jumped in when we went to write this new record. It was probably a couple of hours - it didn't take any time at all,"
he told us. "It was super easy to communicate musically with him and personally. It didn't take any time; it was just effortless. We're both still metalheads and that doesn't change. You're always a metalhead."
