Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler discussed the track during an interview with Lithium Magazine
. He said: "The strings and the operatic sections in that song was a stretch for us. When we first heard some of that stuff coming back from our sessions, it wasn't that we didn't want to do it or that we don't like the song now, but it was one of those things where on our initial listen we were all taken aback like, 'Whoa…can we pull that off? Is this ok for us to do?' There aren't really any rulebooks to what we do, but it was strange. The more we listened to it and spent time with it, and played the album without it, we realized how much stronger the album was with that track included."
