While Matt Olivo and Scott Carlson did 75% of the songs on Horrified
, "Crematorium" was a collaboration by Aaron Freeman and Scott Carlson.
In Precious Metal: Decibel Presents the Stories Behind 25 Extreme Metal Masterpieces
, Scott Carlson tells us that "Crematorium" was one of the few songs on the album written around the blast beat, as opposed to throwing it in as an afterthought. It is definitely one of the last three songs they wrote for Horrified
, and in fact "Crematorium" was written only a couple of days before it was recorded.
