The song "He Is" was written in 2007. The band tried recording it for Infestissumam,
but after attempting to get it to "sound like Ghost" and adding and subtracting aspects,
ultimately put it on the shelf. Upon starting pre-production for Meliora, they added "He Is"
to the list, and after praise from Åhlund, recorded it as it was. A Nameless Ghoul told
Loudwire that the lyrics to the song were influenced by the suicide of Selim Lemouchi,
guitarist of The Devil's Blood, who was friends with members of Ghost.
