The band’s vocalist and songwriter Mille Petrozza spoke in The Metal Authority’s interview and explained the theme of lyrics of the latest album. He said:
“It’s hard to explain. If you already got the glimpe and got the idea that the lyrics are in a way… Of course, I use graphic words and very strong and heavy vocabulary, but the message is a positive one, of course.
That is because a lot of the lyrics are very metaphoric and very much deal with issues that I… When I think about certain events and certain things… Like, for example, ‘Satan Is Real’, of course I don’t think Satan is real. I don’t think any of these religious icons are real. To me, it’s just an expression, an example for Satan, God, Allah… whoever you want him to be.
And I think this shouldn’t be real in this day and age. That’s why the song ‘Satan Is Real’ reflects on the fact that a lot of the problems that we have in this day and age are based on religion and the way people interpret religion and how they make religion a tool to manipulate people and make them do very evil things.”
