First announced in April, the project has gone from concept to completion in just under four weeks.
"Personally, I'm amazed at how fast everything came together given the circumstances," said the project's visionary and Keep it Metal Promotions president, Billy Loney. "Everyone was so eager to be a part of this...their involvement and talent has been the cornerstone of this whole thing."
In an effort to show gratitude to all those on the front lines who have given their time and sacrificed their health unselfishly during this crisis, the free song hopes to entice listeners to donate to current pandemic relief efforts.
