Commented guitarist Gregor Mackintosh: "The [new CD was] again produced by Jens Bogren and is influenced by classic doom metal and classic metal. I would say it is more melodic than the last record whilst retaining the heaviness. There are lots of guitar solos and melodies."
Also this is the first Paradise Lost studio album featuring Adrian Erlandsson on drums, who joined the band in 2009.
There is a track called "The Last Fallen Saviour" which written for this album but it was initially made only available as a free flexi disc with Decibel magazine, but has since been included on Tragic Illusion 25, a rarities compilation released in 2013 to commemorate the band's 25th anniversary.
