Recorded at Cherokee Studios, Hollywood, California.
The intro narration is by Geoff Workman, the sound engineer. It has been claimed to be Nikki Sixx, and Allister Fiend, but it's neither.
The re-release on Mötley Records
(1999) features two unreleased tracks, "I Will Survive", and "Hotter than Hell", along with two demos: "Shout at the Devil", "Looks that Kill", and "Hotter than Hell". "Hotter than Hell" was a live staple before being slightly reworked to "Louder than Hell" (Theatre of Pain). The other two are similar to the album versions.
The original cover, with the embossed black pentagram, was only available on LP until the Japan Mini LP reissue of the remasters on which the original cover was restored.
The original album also contained a warning that the album may contain backwards messages. The backward message was Sixx and Lee trying to chant "Jesus is Satan" as an underdub on the title track.
Another re-release in 2003 (Hip-O Records
) included all of the 1999 bonus tracks, and added "Too Young to Fall in Love" (demo) and a video for "Looks that Kill".
