In an interview with Apple Music, Forge said the song is "more in line with death metal" and has been a huge inspiration for him over the years.

"This is one of Metallica's darker songs, almost more in line with death metal… Definitely not the norm if you listen to the catalog. It's slightly different in tonality, which makes it stand out and makes it super heavy and evil. Very Lovecraftian lyrics. This song has been a huge inspiration of mine for over 30 years."

The covers compilation, titled The Metallica Blacklis, features 53 artists spanning an range of genres, generations, cultures, continents, and more each covering a song off The Black Album. The artists include Ghost, Kamasi Washington, Miley Cyrus and way more! Pre-orders for The Metallica Blacklist are available here.
