Bassist Joost van der Graaf stated, “The idea for the music for ‘Ode To Extinction’ came from the bass intro, which was something I had been fooling around with for a while. As soon as the music kicks in, this progression is played by Marv (guitarist), while Rory (guitarist) and I support it with a riff underneath. On its way, it turns out to be a four-riff song but with quite a lot going on and a bit of an unusual structure. I am pleased with the melody/heaviness balance. Furthermore, I think Marv and Rory did a great job with the leads!”
Vocalist Leif Jensen added, "This track has some unusual structure and a pretty apocalyptic vibe to it, so the lyrics pretty much wrote themselves. It’s surely one of the heaviest songs on 'Intermination' and should be fun to play live!"
Hailed as a "a vicious maelstrom of ostentatiously wicked death-thrash" (MetalStorm), "Intermination" consists of 13 twisting tracks that further cement the band’s reputation as leaders of the modern Teutonic thrash scene. Featuring vicious artwork by Gustavo Sazes, as showcased in the below lyric video, the album marks their tenth studio release to date.
