Speaking with Artist Direct
's Rick Florino, vocalist M. Shadows told the story behind the song: "Well, it came together by listening to way too much Ozzy's Boneyard on SiriusXM Radio," he said. [Laughs]. "They play a lot of classic metal and thrash on there. It's everything from Judas Priest and Iron Maiden to Helloween and Rush. There's all sorts of fun stuff. When we got called about this song, we basically had three days to write it, a couple of days to record it, and we had to be in there doing motion capture. We were like, 'Let's do something that's a bit of a throwback.' It's a little more compact as a song. They needed it to be under four minutes because of animation. We wanted to make a song that punched you in the gut and left you there. We made an up-tempo song with some chord modulations and fun chorus tricks. We had a great time doing it. We wanted to make an uplifting song that was fun and entertaining at the end of the game. I think it came out really well."
