"Torn" was previously described by EVERGREY mastermind Tom S. Englund as a "modern mix of 'In Search Of Truth' and 'Recreation Day'." "The tracks are all guitar-oriented and very atmospheric," he said. "They have exactly the sound that our fans expect from us." According to Englund, the slightly more experimental direction of EVERGREY's previous release, "Monday Morning Apocalypse", has given way again to old strengths and virtues. "Two years ago we needed an album with a slightly different approach and an expensive producer, just to find out how that sort of thing works," he explained. "It was the right album at the time, but now we have returned to our typical trademarks." This is one of the reasons why the tracks on "Torn" were self-produced by Englund together with drummer Jonas Ekdahl. In addition, the band has a new bassist, Fredrik Larsson having been replaced by former STRATOVARIUS musician Jari Kainulainen.

Since the band arrived on the scene in 1998, EVERGREY has brought out six studio albums and one live release. All of them made the Top 20 in the group's native Sweden and the last two cracked the Top 10 (No. 6 and 3, respectively). On top of that, EVERGREY's DVD was No. 1 for four weeks and was nominated for the Swedish Grammy equivalent.

Regarding the upcoming reissues of the band's complete back catalogue, Englund said, "There is so much additional material for each album that we could theoretically re-release it on an extra DVD. Whatever we manage to do — premium reissues are certainly a possibility."
