Solistul vocal Mem Von Stein a declarat: “We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety. We are a lot braver trying to create an up to date and relevant sound that can easily stand alone in today’s thrash landscape without sounding trite or a throwback, and we’re challenging the listener not to get too comfortable with one specific feel, tempo or pace. Our goal is simple: to further establish the band as one of the main German thrash metal acts that began in the 1980’s and are now carrying the torch into the 2020.”
