First Godflesh release to contain full lyrics in the booklet, as well as a studio drummer (Brian Mantia).

Circle of Shit samples Gang Starr's Speak Ya Clout and the sample that Slavestate is based around is from a song called Humanoid by Stakker (also known as Stakker Humanoid) around 1988. Stakker later went on to become The Future Sound of London.

Contrary to popular belief, the album cover picture here and the one later on "Love and Hate in Dub" are not in the same location nor were they taken by the same photographer.

Some interesting notes from Antz who worked on most of Godflesh's art and worked for Earache during the mid-late 90's on recreating reissue artwork for reissue albums:

"The cover for LaHiD isn't the same place as the cover for the SoLaH album. I know they look similar but the shots were both taken by different photographers and in different places. The second shot was sourced because it looked like the first but more doomy. The cross in the first cover was digitally moved on the cover to make a better image and on the second one the sky was enhanced to make it more interesting. Originally the cover of the second album was going to be the same as the first but with an effect like tracing paper down the right hand side with the new title on but in the end Justin and I decided to come up with a different idea. Having the digipack format as the main CD format on the second CD took a lot of persuading with Earache as it was more expensive than a normal case. "
