Avenged Sevenfold created this instrumental to accompany a portion of the multiplayer soundtrack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The band previously used the Call of Duty video game platform for their tune "Not Ready to Die," which was recorded for the Call of Duty: Black Ops expansion 'Call of the Dead.' Also their single "Carry On" was featured on the end credits of that game's sequel Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
The song title references the Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theories that were based on the eponymous United States military exercises that took place between July and September 2015, where armed forces staged drills on private property, military bases and public facilities in multiple US states. The announcements of these training exercises raised concerns that they were actually a secret attempt by the Obama administration to impose martial law, confiscate firearms and institute population control.
