Don Van Stavern states: 
"I was figuring since it's the 30th anniversary of 'Thundersteel' I would create a song in that vibe! It's kind of like 'Thundersteel' 1,000 miles per hour!"

Todd Michael Hall adds: 
"The lyrics are intended to capture the excitement associated with the coming of the savior."


The album was produced by Chris "The Wizard" Collier (METAL CHURCHFLOTSAM & JETSAMSLIPKNOTKORN a.o.), while the cover artwork was created by Mariusz Gandzel (CRYSTAL VIPER a.o.).
