We started with about 22 songs/sketches/demos that the three of us picked through with the idea that we'd delete anything any of us weren't immediately keen on, record everything that was left, and from that, choose the songs that worked best together as an album. "Days In Fire" was initially on the cut list- partially because it was nearly five minutes with not a whole lot going on, and partially because there were already two other songs heavily themed with fire. Two's company, three's a "what's the deal with all this fire?" So, needless to say, it was on the chopping block. However, after listening to some of the mixes of songs we've been working on, not only did "Days In Fire" fit in tone (as well as, yes, thematically) it seemed to be providing something that was missing to the flow of the songs. In short, it might just fit in better than we'd thought.
So we started tracking it.
