Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth comments, "The time has come, for a first taste, 'Last Man Standing'. This cut got the unanimous nod to open The Wings of War, all they way back to the first demos in March, so much so, it was mock titled OPENER up until the recording. Sometimes everyone is on the same page, wtf!. So dig into some old school thrash, with a side order of Jersey made, head-banging."
