"'(Si Vis Pacem) Parabellum' is a piece of great difficulty," said Malmsteen. "Octave arpeggios it is very satisfying to apply this extremely challenging violin technique to my own composition. Starting in B harmonic minor, it transposes to D natural major and then into F# Phrygian. It is a natural flow within the chord progression of relative keys and modes.

"It was very challenging and exciting to perform this piece and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do."

Parabellum's cover features a portrait of Malmsteen painted by David Banegas. The original painting will be auctioned off to support children in foster care, though no additional details are currently available on that.
