Combination of fast tempo, catchy guitar riffs and powerful lyrics together with powerful and touching vocals could set this song as the next metal anthem for the new metal generation.
In band’s own words, “Hail To You!” is about metaphorical war, what becomes of us, soldiers, during the war. As you know, war changes everyone – you can try to be different, but… you just can’t. So the ones that have to change are not soldiers that are fighting. But the people they're fighting for... At the end – we have to be all together, to stand united. Brothers and Sisters, hail to you!”
