Although GALLHAMMER has been known primarily as a black metal/punk/crust act, the album is impressively diverse, showing their implementation of many influences and moods from both metal and non-metal genres. The themes are based around isolation, oppression, a world without colour, with bassist/vocalist Vivian Slaughter describing the imagery as "delirium — [like] being in a midday nightmare under the scorching sunshine"; all wrapped in sheer poetic gloom. "Ill Innocence" also features recordings of the tracks "Speed of Blood" and "At the Onset of the Age of Despair", as previewed in demo form on "The Dawn of…" A GALLHAMMER mini-site containing downloads, album info, new tracks, and CD/t-shirt bundles can be found at this location.
