We Came as Romans' 2011 sophomore album Understanding What We've Grown to Be followed up the band's 2009 debut, We Plant a Seed. Lyrically somewhat darker in tone than its predecessor, Understanding What We've Grown to Be is also a bigger, more robust production that showcases the band’s growth as an ensemble. Along with We Came as Romans' hard-hitting metalcore sound, the band incorporates some piercing synthesizer and orchestral arrangements that add to the album's epic quality.
