Psycroptic vocalist Jason Peppiatt told Decibel Magazine that Psycroptic sought to push their limits when writing and recording As the Kingdom Drowns.

“As always with this band we wanted it to have the distinctive sound of a Psycroptic album but wanted to push ourselves further with adding new elements and having a darker vibe than on previous releases. I think we achieved our goal and this is something we are all very proud of!”
