Glenn Tipton says:
“I used an SG on this cut - actually, on a lot of the album - and I remember I had a lot of Marshall stacks in the downstairs living room and I was getting a good sound there.
“We were emerging at the time as, well, ‘metal gods,’ if you will. Everything was falling into place with our sound, our image, how we were being seen. I would say this song reflects our confidence.”
KK Downing says:
“It’s stayed in the Priest set since 1980, so I would say that’s a bold testimony to the song’s power and longevity.
“What’s funny is, there were no samples in those days, so we created our own. The clanking of the chains you hear is us raiding through Ringo Starr’s cutlery drawer and shaking knives and forks around. I don’t think he ever knew that... but he will now!”
