Black Moon was ELP's first studio album since
1978's Love Beach and marked the reunion of the three original members after a 14-year hiatus. Originally released in 1992, it was produced by Mark Mancina and engineered by Steve Kempster, who achieved a powerful, updated sound. The title track was inspired by TV images of oil fields set ablaze in 1991 during the first Gulf War. Lake recalls: "It really was a well-made, well-conceived record and all the new material was specifically written for the album." Expertly remastered for the first time by celebrated rock studio engineer Andy Pearce.
