Seen It All Before

Album: Sempiternal (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Drummer Matt Nicholls told Metal Hammer magazine that this "started out sounding like a really '90s, Euro thing" that keyboardist Jordan Fish made. He added: "It took all of us a bit of time to get used to the sound of it, but now that it's all mixed and stuff, it sounds amazing. When you strip it all back, that '90s Euro sound is still there."
  • Bassist Matt Kean told Sugarscape: "This was one of the quickest ones [to create] on the album and I think the chorus really makes the song. It's a good shouty chorus."
