Mike Gonzalez never actually played on this album even though he is mentioned in the credits as well as the inlay photos and the promo photos at the time. The bass parts were actually played by Rob Yahn, who left the band right after the album was finished.

A slightly alternate version of "The Burning of Sodom" is featured on the 1986 Bullets Vol. 1 compilation from Combat Records, recorded without the scream near the beginning.

Recording information:

Recorded at Music Grinder Studios & Mad Dog Studios.
Mixed at Mad Dog Studios. Mastered at Capital Studios.
