Travis Ryan commented on the recording: "It's an honor to receive a call from someone you had pictures of on your wall as a kid asking you to be on a new album of theirs. I literally had a picture of Max and Gloria holding Richie in her arms that I ripped out of a copy of Metal Maniacs on my wall when I was 15 or 16. Now they're asking for my artistic hand in one of their creations, just doesn't get much more surreal than that. Very honored and the song is very 'death metal-ish' and completely crushes. Happy to be a part of it!"
Producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, The Red Chord) had the following comments on Travis' recording: "The vocals fucking rule!!!! Fits the song perfect… Very refreshing for me to hear these days."
