Songfacts®:

  • DragonForce recorded two versions of this track for their The Power Within album - a normal rock version and a quieter acoustic one. During an interview on Roadrunner Records' website, the band's guitarist and songwriter Sam Totman explained the acoustic version: "It was supposed to be a bonus track for the Japanese version or something, so we didn't really think anything of it," he said. "We were like, let's do an acoustic version, because we didn't have time to write another whole song. So it was either gonna be that or 'Cry Thunder' - we were thinking about doing an acoustic version of 'Cry Thunder' first, actually. We thought we could do some kind of folky, sitting-around-the-campfire type of thing, which I think would have been cool, too. But it ended up being 'Seasons,' and when we recorded it, we thought, 'Oh, this is actually pretty cool,' so let's put it on the record. Cause it shows that we're not all about playing a million miles an hour; we've got a sensitive side. [laughs] So yeah, it wasn't supposed to be anything amazing, to be honest, but it turned out really cool."
  • The song's montage video was filmed during a series of shows played to introduce new singer Marc Hudson to DragonForce's fan base prior to the commencement of 'The Power Within' World Tour. They included performances at the 02 Arena in London and the Knockout Festival in Germany.
