The main part of the stories told on this album is unfortunately true, and took place during the French Inquisition 1450-1670.

USA: 179

In a Facebook entry titled "The Truth", published in July 2014, King stated that during the recording of the album, "Hal Patino was nowhere to be found when he was supposed to lay down bass tracks. As a result, the band ended up spending seven days watching the walls of the expensive Sweet Silence Studios in Denmark with absolutely nothing to do but sit and hope that Hal Patino would show up at some point."

Recording information:

Recorded and Mixed at ''Sweet Silence Studio'', Copenhagen, June - August 1990.
