I wanted a deep, rolling bass tone for this one, with an edgy, almost anxious melody. I also wanted a touch of a disco vibe too, so I used a digital delay on my guitar chords, with a nice tight disco beat keeping the rhythm in line. I also wanted to have the chorus explode out of the song like a psychotic meltdown, a driving, stormy, exodus of sanity...all the while being cheered on by angels of insanity chanting, "ready or not! Ready or not!"
