Jukka Pelkonen (vocals) comments: “This classic pop song is shapeshifting into Omnium Gatherum style of modern melodic death metal blast! Here is something to dance and headbang to in summertime!”


Markus Vanhala (guitars and clean vocals) adds: “I heard it from the start with this classic 80’s banger that it had all the usual OG elements there, our band just had to play this and turn this to OG song! Get your upcoming summer spiced with this one and it’s gonna be a good one!”


The band has given all their fans the opportunity to choose a new possible track that they might cover; fans can choose a song from a decent list as well as a mood and style that this new cover song could have; this will be released in one of their future formats.
