Recorded at Spider Studios, Strongsville, Ohio.
Mixed at Chapel Recording Studios, Lincolnshire, England.
Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York.

Recording began on November 26, 2002 and finished in early January, 2003.
The album title came from a scene in the movie "Platoon".

The voice at the beginning of Power Trip is a trucker saying "he had god like power".
The studio was next to a highway and their equipment would sometimes pick up CB radio signals from trucks passing by.

Japanese/UK version contains the bonus track:
13. Army of Me (04:21)

Digital reissue version comes with two bonus tracks:
13. Army of Me (04:21)
14. Stays the Same (03:06)*

Tthis is a re-recorded version from the song used during the credits of the Chimaira 'The Dehumnaizing Process' DVD.
The demo version lasts 03:16, the "rerecorded" version (used as a bonus track here) only lasts 03:06.

"Army of Me" is a Björk cover taken from the 2003 "Freddy vs. Jason" soundtrack.

Limited Edition release contains a bonus cd called "Reasoning the Impossible" (Original Chimaira rhythm guitarist, Jason Hager, plays on tracks 2-8):

1. Indifferent to Suffering (04:21)
2. Without Moral Restraint (04:01)
