Lead vocalist M. Shadows told Kerrang!
magazine: "If you just listen to the music, it feels like you've been taken down to Hell. From the riffs, to the bells ringing, to the horns, to the drumbeat, it feels like you're being dragged down."
He added: "It's very like 'Sympathy For The Devil
,' in that there's a silver-tongued Devil speaking to you. He's not all about fire and brimstone; he's luring you down and telling you he can make your life better than the guy up above. There's a temptation vibe to it, with pure chaos going on behind it."
