When vocalist Matt Heafy first heard Gregoletto's song idea, it reminded him of Swedish melodic death metal music such as early Amon Amarth, so he brought in a guitar melody that was a Gothenburg-style melodic death metal along the lines of At The Gates. He explained to Music Radar
"The harmony of that high Swedish melody is all major – it's so bizarre and happy-sounding when you hear it alone. It constantly changes key, modes and feel but it all makes sense and works. I think it's a nod to the Shogun era of Trivium where we had a little bit of everything on each song."
