This Beyond Hell/Above Heaven
track is dedicated to Danish boxing champion Mikkel Kessler. He also provides vocals on the tune.
Speaking to EspyRock
in a 2010 interview, vocalist Michael Poulsen
explained: "Mikkel is the biggest boxer in Denmark and he was in this tournament called the 'Super Six Tournament' and he needed a song. He had been to some of the Volbeat shows and I had been to some of his fights, so we just started talking and I said, 'You know, you need a good song when you're walking to the ring,' and he said, 'Yeah, if you can come up with something good, let's work on it.'"
"I had this idea for 'A Warriors Call' and Mikkel really liked it, so we were in the studio and we had him sing on the part 'Fight Fight Fight' and now he is walking into the ring with that song," Poulson continued. "I'm really proud of that since I'm a big boxing fan and a boxing fanatic and my father was also an old fighter. Every day, the first thing I do in the morning is load up the computer and go to FightNews.com."
