  • Hansi Kürsch, lead vocalist of the German power metal band, credits producer Charlie Bauerfeind for improving the song's arrangement. He told About Entertainment: "In 'Wheel Of Time,' we have a strong Oriental approach, which we didn't recognize that much. But he figured it out and said there was a clash between Oriental and Occidental parts. We worked it out more properly. That was different than what we've done in the past."
