A special 1990 Capitol Records variant features a coffin-shaped box with a pop-up Vic Rattlehead.

Chris Poland is the second guitarist on the demo tracks.

When remastering the album, the original lead vocal tracks for "Take No Prisoners", "Rust in Peace... Polaris", "Five Magics" and "Lucretia" were all missing. Dave Mustaine recorded new vocal tracks for "Take No Prisoners" and "Rust in Peace... Polaris", while unused alternate takes from the original sessions were utilised for "Lucretia" and "Five Magics".

Korean pressing of the CD has "Breakpoint" as a bonus track (track 10).

Original sound version now out of print.

Music videos were made for Hangar 18 and Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
