Sänger Barney Greenway gibt folgendes Statement zum Album:
"It was very cool that Anneke from THE GATHERING offered to sing on the album. It's really funny, because we never would have thought about having guest vocals before the 'The Code...' but every vocalist worked well with the song they contributed to. Anneke's style is clearly very different to that of, for example, Jello Biafra but what she does totally enhances the experience. It sounds pretty spooky."
"Lyrics: I guess people know about the album title now but to give a brief explanation the general thread is actually a question asking why exactly we need religion to give us a basis on how to run our lives. Can we not be trusted as human beings to make our own decisions? This applies in my eyes to everything from Christianity to Paganism to Satanism. Surely the world would be more peaceful without religious restrictions and all this false morality!"
