This is the closing track of Shadowmaker
, Apocalyptica's first album with a single vocalist, former Scars on Broadway guitarist Franky Perez. Apocalyptica songwriter and producer Eicca Toppinen told Artist Direct
the story of the song: "It was supposed to be an instrumental track but the fact that we had a singer in the rehearsal room, we thought we should try it with a singer."
"Since we had Franky in the pre-production, we told him to try to sing the cello melody. We knew right away that the song needed to go in this direction. Even without lyrics and just humming the melody. It then changed from an instrumental to a vocal track. That song had a really long process."
