Commented Ellefson: "A short while ago I was asked by Greek guitarist Ilias Papadakis to add a bass track to this cool new song he wrote. It also includes my longtime friend Nick Menza on drums and Jeff Waters shredding it on guitar.

"I've been a HUGE ANNIHILATOR fan over the years and ironically Nick and I used to drive to 'Rust In Peace' rehearsals in the early '90s thrashing out to the 'Alice In Hell' and 'Never, Neverland' albums. I'm glad we all got to play on this song from Ilias as a way to celebrate the metal together."
