Ryan Strain commented:
Back in the fall of 2016, I had the pleasure of recording this guest chorus/bridge/background vocals for the very talented Josh Dummer. Little did I know that Teemu from Wintersun would join me as well for a guest solo. I’m incredibly proud of what we all created together, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
