“We all knew that this would be the lead song on the album as soon as we wrote it,” vocalist/guitarist Ben Ward told Noisecreep. “It felt kind of special and it set the tempo and feel for the whole record. It’s one that we all had a lot of input on, so it’s a real band effort and it definitely wasn’t rushed; the ending must’ve been changed half a dozen times or so until we were all satisfied! It’s a very typical Orange Goblin song and I’m confident that it’s going to be a live favorite for many years to come. We’ve actually played it at the last few shows and despite no one knowing it, it got a great response.
The song explores Ward’s self-admitted “fascination” with the works of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. “The theme of the track centers around the rising of Cthulhu from the deep and the ultimate destruction of Earth and mankind,” Ward said. “It was fun for me to use my imagination and be able to write about the Elder gods and the end of the world. I think it’ll make a great heavy metal video! We actually have a shoot for the video to this song this coming Sunday and I’m really excited about how it’s gonna turn out.”
