This is the lead single from Firepower
, the first Judas Priest
studio album to be produced by Tom Allom since their seminal 1980s records. Allom produced every Judas Priest release from 1979's Unleashed In The East
to 1988's Ram It Down
. Bassist Ian Hill told Revolver
: "Tom Allom has been with us since 1979, so his knowledge of ourselves and our music in general is immense. We went back to the organic way of recording where it's all of us in a room and we got to play together."
Andy Sneap (Saxon, Accept) was also part of the production team. "Tom Allom has got this classic metal thing," frontman Rob Halford said, "and Andy is a bit more of a 'modern metal producer,' but his thinking is a little bit different to Tom's. And I think to get this balance between that classic old school metal to what Andy's world is was just a remarkable coalescence."
