Frontman Lord S. comments on behalf of BAPTISM regarding "The Sacrament Of Blood And Ash": "Simply put, in order to rise above we must overcome our lesser and mundane self. If we succeed in this act, time and time again, the blood of this offering will water the roots of the tree which is known as our spiritual development. The lyrics for this song were written based on my ideas by Gorath Moonthorn. Three more long-time friends are featured on this album as well and we are joined for this first preview by our brother Mikko Kotamäki from SWALLOW THE SUN, whose voice fits the chorus perfectly."

The clip for "The Sacrament Of Blood And Ash" has been created by renowned Romanian and Roadburn resident artist Costin Chioreanu (MAYHEM, VULTURE INDUSTRIES, CARACH ANGREN, and many more).
