In addition, survivingCooperband membersMichael Bruce,Dennis DunawayandNeal Smithappear on the song"When Hell Comes Home". In an interview withBillboard.com,Coopersaid about the forthcoming CD, "I had an idea to do a part two to (2008's)'Along Came a Spider'. I came to [producer]Bob (Ezrin;Pink Floyd,KISS) with it, and he listened and goes, 'Eh. I would be more excited if'Along Came a Spider'was a No. 1 record.' He wasn't really into it. Then we started talking about'Welcome to My Nightmare''s 35th anniversary or something like that, and he said, 'What ifAlicehad another nightmare?' All I was trying to do was getBobto say, 'Yeah, I want to produce the album,' so we found a place where both of us really felt comfortable, and that was doing'Nightmare 2'." "There are certain songs where we let some of the themes from (the original)'Nightmare'slip in,"CoopertoldBillboard.com. "All of a sudden you'll hear the little piano part from'Steven'or from'The Awakening'. I wanted (the albums) to be married together. I think we even make reference to a couple of characters from the original (album)."
