Although Mike Zaputil was credited on the album, bass tracks were actually recorded by George Robb (who was fired after the recordings, while Mike Zaputil joined early '86 from Letchen Grey).

Released early 1986 on Combat (US) and Music For Nations (Europe). The US pressing was on black vinyl for the promos, blue vinyl for the actual release, and contained an extra track, '144,000 Gone'.

The cassette version featured the bonus track "Taken by Force".

Re-released on CD by Century Media Records in 1999, cat.no. 66052-2.
