Guitarist Josh Schwartz spoke about “Out of the Darkness”:
“This is one of my favorite solos, and surprised me at how much it reminded me of Helloween after I added the harmonies. Vocally, John Gallagher really nailed his parts in the studio. Watching him work was amazing…it seemed effortless for him. We’re really proud of the way the album version turned out with the John/Nina duet, but Nina really put in a killer performance on the whole song so we’re proud to put out this version too.”
Drummer Chris Haren chimed in:
“The title cut “Out of the Darkness” is a fast-paced, relentless song that burns from beginning to end and really gets the crowd pumped up. It is the most Maiden/Priest-like song in our repertoire, and really draws on our more ’80s, traditional metal influences. Lyrically, it describes an individual standing strong in the face of dishonesty, temptation and deception.”
Noisecreep is hosting a stream of the song “The Day I Die” HERE.
