Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the first single from the eighth studio album by the metal band Soulfly, which has a concept running through it of slavery. The collection was recorded in late 2011 in Tallcat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and produced by frontman Max Cavalera along with Chris "Zeuss" Harris. It is the first Soulfly record to feature Asesino frontman Tony Campos on bass, and former Borknagar drummer David Kinkade on drums. This single was released on January 25, 2012.
Singer Travis Ryan of San Diego extreme metallers Cattle Decapitation recorded guest vocals for this song at Frick'in Studios in San Marcos, California. He was a replacement for Soulfly's original choice, Oceano's Adam Warren. Commented Ryan: "It's an honor to receive a call from someone you had pictures of on your wall as a kid asking you to be on a new album of theirs. I literally had a picture of Max and Gloria [Max's wife and manager] holding [Gloria's son] Richie in her arms that I ripped out of a copy of Metal Maniacs on my wall when I was 15 or 16. Now they're asking for my artistic hand in one of their creations; [it] just doesn't get much more surreal than that. Very honored and the song is very 'death metal-ish' and completely crushes. Happy to be a part of it!"
