Chemical Burn enlisted producer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Exodus) to oversee production of "Raining Anvils" at Oakland's JingleTown Studios. "We poured all we had into making these songs just right," declares Chemical Burn’s Mike Garnica (vocals/bass). "Every part was written with the intent to set the world on fire. Then we took them to Juan and he dumped jet fuel on them."
Having cut his teeth as a tech for the likes of Laaz Rocket and Dragonlord, Garnica formed the current formation of Chemical Burn with Kevin Jackson, a drummer who's toured with Primer 55 and many others. Rounding out Chemical Burn is Bay Area shredder Marc Pattison, formerly of Circle II Circle.
"It's not necessarily just drugs and alcohol, but our day-to-day obsessions, relationships, the drama we get involved in and the emotions we feel from it," explains Garnica. "A lot of the album is about a journey through a mentality that has gone from a rock bottom of sorts, to a rebirth and new course in life."
