About the album, leader Sakis Tolis told Greece’s Rock Overdose: “It’s definitely something refreshed. We have proved all these years that the reason we release an album is because we have to say something new to the world. Otherwise our discography would be over long time ago. So we are dealing with a Rotting Christ album that will bring the band at least one step forward in terms of composition and always faithfully within the limits of Rotting Christ.”
