The titular Night Hag is mentioned throughout the album with the final track, featuring Brazilian composer Renato Zanuto, of the eleven-song opus acting as a means of pulling the themes together. The band’s first single, “White Night”, featured Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser and received its premieres on Kerrang! Radio and Midlands Metalheads.
