Recorded at Prarie Sun Studios, July 1984.
Mixed at Tres Virgos Studios, August 1984.
Mastered at Fantasy Studios.

Some songs were co-written by Kirk Hammett.

The album was originally titled A Lesson in Violence, but had its name changed when a suitable cover idea could not be found. An advance cassette copy of the album (with the original title) was widely distributed through the tape-trading network upon the record's completion late in the summer of 1984, creating an immense underground buzz prior to the official release of the LP. The release was delayed, however, due to problems with the artwork.

The original cover is shown on the left. On the right is the cover used on the CD re-release.
The reissue includes two bonus live tracks, with Steve "Zetro" Souza on vocals (recorded live in London on March 8th, 1989):

10. And Then There Were None (04:51)
11. A Lesson in Violence (03:26)

These same bonus tracks are also included on the 1999 Century Media Records reissue, which restores the original cover, and the 2008 "limited silver edition" reissue, also by Century Media. The latter is remastered and comes in slipcase.
