Guitarist Jakob had this to say about the song, and the album,
“‘The Follower’ is a taste of things to come from MERCENARY’s sixth studio album, ‘Metamorphosis’. The song represents a more straightforward, accessible side of MERCENARY’s new sound while it also allows singer René Pedersen to display new and more melodic aspects of his vocal range. Rest assured, however, that the album will also have far heavier and faster songs, providing the characteristic contrasts of MERCENARY’s sound.”
The band’s last studio release was 2008’s “Architect of Lies,” which was released through the band’s previous label Century Media.
