Recorded and mixed at The Miller Cave Studio in Newton, Kansas.

A drum computer was used on this recording.

"From Beyond" was inspired by the story of the same name by H.P. Lovecraft.
"The Book of Skelos" was inspired by the writings about the Hyborean Age by Robert E. Howard.

II. The Book of Shadows
III. The Book of Skulls

Reissued in 2002 by Iron Glory Records with an additional bonus track:
10. Far Side of the Sun (Live) [5:56]
This is taken from the Roadkill live album.

Re-released on vinyl by High Roller Records in 2011. Limited to 1000 copies (100 x "grimace" purple vinyl, 300 x white vinyl, 600 x black vinyl) with gatefold cover and poster.

Re-released on CD by Shadow Kingdom Records on June 19, 2012.
