Produced by Demonoid. Music by Demonoid.

The booklet states (exact words):
"All drums are acoustic, no fucking samples or triggers were used".

The concept of this album tells about the 4 Biblical Riders of the Apocalypse: War, Plague, Starvation & Death who are all the mightiest of the destructive Gods. The first part of the album observes the various atrocities by mankind, and the punishments (plagues, earthquakes, wars...) by the Gods who tried to redeem them throughout the ages. The second part tells of the mighty evocation of the riders by a secret religious cabal, and the Rider's final war against mankind. The last part is where the whole of humankind is eradicated, save for one man, who will walk the aftermath of plague, war, starvation and death - unable to breed... destined to die as the last of his kind.
