The band return to their more metal roots on this album and Mike Scaccia returns to guitars.

Al Jourgensen has stated that the name Houses of the Molé is a tribute to the Houses of the Holy album, released by Led Zeppelin in 1973.

Contains the hidden tracks Psalm 23 (5:41) and Walrus (2:45).

"Psalm 23" is an alternate version of "No W" (minus the Carmina Burana samples) preceded by a mysterious rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner (source of the recording unknown). Later versions of Houses of the Molé do not feature the version of "No W" with the Carmina Burana samples. Instead, a version of "Psalm 23" with a shortened intro is included as the first track (and labelled as "No W"). "Psalm 23" is replaced by the track "Bloodlines".
