The Last Breath is one of the first songs we wrote for the album and it's the first song we ever wrote that features clean vocals.
It may not have the aggression or speed of other songs, but it has an intensity that makes it really unique, especially when played live.
It is about the moment when the warrior, on the verge of death, realizes that he may have spent his life building something that was ultimately meaningless.
It's this situation that we chose to represent on the album cover.
The Last Breath is also in my opinion one of the songs that Jens Bogren did the most impressive work on, especially the vocal work and some of the effects he added that really bring something to the atmosphere.
