At 240 beats-per-minute, this is the fastest song ever laid down by DragonForce, a record they had previously broken with "Fallen World
The song came together when guitarist Sam Totman went to France to work on songs with DragonForce bass player Fred Leclercq. Totman says they didn't set out to write a super-fast song, but they started listening to albums by Sepultura (Beneath the Remains
) and Slayer (Reign in Blood
), and realized that some of those songs were very high tempo and still worked. After some experimentation, they figured out that 240 BPM could work - most DragonForce songs are around 200 BPM.
