The CD also splits up track 1 into two separate tracks: "Ragnarok" and "Inferno".
Tracks 10 and 11 are taken from the 7" single "Buried Alive".

This album came out when Brian Ross decided to reform Blitzkrieg and record the album they wanted to record before they split up in 1981. After the original split of Blitzkrieg Brian sang with Avenger, Satan and Lone Wolf.

"Pull the Trigger" is in fact a Satan song that wasn't featured on the album Brian did with Satan, though it did appear on an earlier demo Into the Fire.

"Take a Look Around" was recorded during these sessions and intended to be used on a single, but that never materialized. It is added on the 1992 CD release as the fifth track (4:14) and also appears on the A Time of Changes - Phase 1 compilation.

The crowd noise on "Hell to Pay" was lifted from a Queen concert as a joke on the rumors that the Blitzed Alive tape was a fake live show. At the time of its release most people believed Hell to Pay was actually recorded live.

Recording information:

Recorded at Impulse 24, Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
