Guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained to Metal Hammer why the band recorded this instrumental track. He explained: "Funnily enough, it was Ivan [Moody, vocals] who really pushed for there to be an instrumental on the album! He said that he just wanted to hear us play, to just shred it, so that's what we did! However, it's not a typical instrumental in that we decided to retain a strong sense of structure, to still go down the verse/chorus route, only with the guitars doing the work."
Bathory added that the title comes from, "the last round of the ninth circle of hell in Dante's Inferno, and as this was the last track we worked on and the record was pretty much a journey through hell to make, lots of pressure, loads to do and not much time to do it in, we thought it highly appropriate!"
