Comments the band’s vocalist/guitarist James Malone:
“‘Visitant‘ is like an old-time word for ghost or apparition. All the lyrics are inspired by a different horror movie. I wanted a title that would allude to that but not give things—what I’m actually saying—away flat out. When I say inspired by, it’s very loose. People still have room to draw their own interpretations of what the lyrics are about.
But they were inspired by horror movies. Like ‘80s horror movies. ‘Silver Bullet‘, for example, which is based off Stephen King’s ‘Cycle of the Werewolf‘, is a favorite. I love that movie. I’ll also name drop ‘The Fog‘, ‘Prince of Darkness‘, and ‘Lord of Illusions‘. There’s a supernatural element to the lyrics for sure.”
