Ville Friman had this to say about the record: "Again, the process could be described as a battle against time and ever-narrowing deadlines. We worked long days and we worked hard. But in the end, it was all worth it: new songs sound just amazing. I think the new material is a bit more atmospheric than before. We explored different directions, and for example, experimented with rhythms a bit more; we even have blast beats on this album. And of course, Markus Vanhala brought in his influence in terms of song writing and guitar playing which is something new. However, I think we did not push it too far but stayed loyal to our own sound. Our intention was never really to change but merely update and revise our sound a bit. And I think we did pretty good job with it."
