Commented guitarist John Allan (guitar): "The new STEEL ATTACK album should not be compared at all with the old albums. This is the best album that the band released so far. There are a lot that differ the sound from the previous ones. Like the sound of the new lead singer Ronny Hemlin who got a very wide range in his voice and sings with an attitude that let all words got the right touch to the sound that the members in the musical way brings on as well.
"The lyrics throughout the album are about religions in different angles and point of views mostly relating to the illogical sides and the ones with big question marks, such as, 'No matter what evil deed you do, it is all right if you do it in the name of God' (that sucks).
"The songs throughout the album should be taken to each listeners own point of view, when it comes to the lyrics its up to the listener to treat the content in his or hers own way of understanding and judgment of its content and meaning. So our point of view in the songs will not be told, as then the multiple point of view to each listener will be spoiled.
"See the songs as a mix of a very varied album, both fast and some slower parts; there are no ballads, since none of us got the music at this time for such kind of songs at this time in the new STEEL ATTACK's sound."
