"Buckfast Powersmash" features the melody of the theme song from the childrens' television series ChuckleVision.

The lyrics to the song "Swashbuckled" make reference to the members of Swashbuckle, another pirate-themed metal band.

The lyric to "Rumpelkombo" is credited to Chris Boltendahl of Grave Digger. Boltendahl used the term to insultingly refer to Alestorm in an interview relating to a fractious joint tour between the two bands. The song was recorded so that Boltendahl would occasionally receive very small royalty payments for the song as a constant reminder of his time with Alestorm.

Videos were made for Shipwrecked and Death Throes of the Terrorsquid.

Recording information:

Produced, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered at LSD Studios, Germany, in January & February 2011.
