From interview by Burning Black - E-zine (2005):

BB: Something that takes my attention was the last track of "Generating Doom"; "Popol Vuh" was the sacred book of Mayas, am I right? Can you tell us how appear the idea of making this song?

F / M: Popol Vuh is the Mayan book of the dead, that ´s right. But the song title rather refers to the great German experimental psychedelic Kraut-Rock band consisting of mainly one guy, Florian Fricke. He made a lot of great sounds especially used by Werner Herzog for his movies with Klaus Kinski, like "Nosferatu" or "Aguirre - The wrath of god". When we recorded this song in the studio it was a very spontaneous act, experimenting with instruments and sound-editing techniques. The result immediately remembered us of the jungle score of "Aguirre" so we chose this name. It ´s some kind of homage to Fricke / Popol Vuh.

S: I had the idea to do such a percussion song because I wanted to play my roto - toms which weren ´t needed in the songs on CD.

Joseph D.Rowland (Pallbearer):

"Popol Vuh is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm not really sure how I came across Popol Vuh years ago, but they have consistently stuck with me as one of the most atmosphere-filled music groups that's able to conjure up such an incredible feeling, a meditative feeling, with simple but with awesome melodies, hypnotic". (2013)
