During the recording sessions, Portnoy invited fans to come to Avatar Studios to be a part of the recording process. Strict rules were set in place for arrival of fans, with Portnoy claiming "only 30 or 40" would be allowed in and warning fans not to camp out and that people standing outside the studio prior to the allotted time would not be allowed in. Avatar Studios, perhaps fearing a "land grab" type situation where many fans rushed towards the studio at the allotted time, instead ignored Portnoy's request and fans who did line up prior were allowed in, leaving some fans who followed the rules not able to get in.
