"As we have finally come to the day of Persona Non Grata's release, something we've been eagerly awaiting for what seems like an eternity," said guitarist Gary Holt. "We are pleased to share one last lyric video with you, my personal favorite song on the album, 'Prescribing Horror.' A little tale of motherhood and a drug, and what happens when greed comes before life and safety. The story of Thalidomide."

Thalidomide was first introduced in West Germany in 1957 for anxiety, trouble sleeping, tension, and morning sickness. Concerns arose in 1961 about birth defects after about 10,000 embryos were affected, and of which about 40% died around the time of birth.
