Speaking on the track premiere, Steve Redmond (guitar and orchestration) comments: „For this song I tried to channel my death and tech-death roots to create something dark and complex. Having Hannes Grossmann on drums really allowed me push the music to be more extreme at times and I think this track is a good example of that.“
Vocalist, Dan Cooley adds: „We’re really happy with how this song turned out as it showcases one of the things we try push in our songs, which is storytelling. The use of classical guitar and blackened death metal rhythms created an excellent canvas for us to bring a haunting story about La Llorna, The Weeping Woman, to life.”
