This album was released in Europe through Massacre Records.

The songs on the album were supposed to be released in 1991.

Re-released 2011 in digipack format with remastered sound by Andy LaRoque.

Unlike all other King Diamond albums except the debut "Fatal Portrait", this is not a full concept album - only the last four songs tell "The Spider's Lullabye" story.

In 2009 a bootleg 4-track demo vinyl of this album was released, with the following dates:
"There is no real drummer in this recording, so a drum machine was used but without ruining it. Recorded somewhere between 1990-1995 when the band left Roadrunner and were looking for a new record label to release "The Spider's Lullabye". The audio was taken directly from a leaked source tape ensuring the best sound quality possible. Comes with lyric sheet and a poster. No other info is available other than pressing info: black vinyl (this), transparent orange and transparent red vinyl."

Recording information:

Recorded and Mixed at ''The Dallas Sound Lab'' September - October 1994.
Mastered at ''Future Disc''.
