Guitarist John Moyer has the following to say about the song:
“‘Echo Of A Scream‘ has an interesting history en route to its eventual completion. I really enjoy collaborating with artists. Working with other creative minds is a great way to write uniquely powerful songs that go beyond just one person’s vision. ‘Echo of a Scream’ is a testament to that. The original music bed was written by myself and Logan Mader of Once Human a few years ago for a project that never materialized.
I always loved the music and I thought it might be a good fit for Art Of Anarchy. As I was presenting it to the band I also asked David Draiman if he would be gracious enough to contribute to it as well. He came up with some great melody lines that combined with what Scott had for the song really took it over the top. By the time Bumblefoot and the Votta brothers put their spin on it, it really came alive.”
