I absolutely love Sozos's voice and I knew when the decision was made for him to split ways with Helion Prime that it wouldn't be the end of us working together. He's become a close friend of mine and someone I enjoy collaborating with. I'm also thrilled that I can use this project to move away from my science and sci-fi based material that I do with Helion Prime and Dire Peril. This will be mostly a studio project and that's perfect for us. It's completely free of pressure and expectations and meant to be a fun rewarding experience."*. Sozos Michael adds: * "I'm thrilled to find my collaboration with Jason resuming under Planeswalker. After Helion Prime, It was only a matter of time before we started a project such as this one. Despite the 10 hour time difference, working with Jason was the smoothest musical collaboration I ever had. I'm excited to write again, now drawing inspiration from a new source. We are excited to delve deeper into the rich lore of the MtG universe and write some awesome tunes!"*.

The name Helion Prime was borrowed from an alien planet featured in the movie "Chronicles of Riddick", a film the two creators of the band, Jason Ashcraft and Heather Michele, were big fans of.
