Bass-player Pasi Tanskanen says about “Excelsior”:

“‘Excelsior’ is a very energetic old-school Heavy Metal anthem and also showcases the vocalist Erik Kraemer’s incredible range and skills!

Writing ‘Excelsior’ started with the intro guitar riff which I ended up using on chorus as well. The song started to build up from there to become a fresh take on what NWOBHM has been offering since the 80s.

The theme of the song is basically going from feeling down and low to reach the stars and taking the means to your own hands in your life. Higher and higher as the Latin word of the song title translates.”

Skillfully refreshed tradition!
