Overkill lead singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bass player D. D. Verni wrote the songs on the band's album White Devil Armory
. The thread of the album is the word "Armory," which Verni envisioned when coming up with riff. Once he wrote the music for this song, Ellsworth created a character for the concept who he called "The Armorist."
"At this point in his journey, there's nothing louder than the silence inside of his head," Ellsworth explained in our interview
. "He is unto himself, alone, he is isolated, but continues to complete the task at hand, whatever that task may be."
