Recorded and mixed at Morrisound Studios, Tampa, Florida.
Produced by Scott Burns and Obituary.

The cover art was supposed to be the cover of Sepultura's album "Beneath the Remains", but Roadrunner Records let Obituary use it first, even though "Cause of Death" was released in 1990, a year after "Beneath the Remains". Sepultura chose another Michael Whelan illustration instead.

The vinyl picture disc edition of Cause of Death includes one bonus track not available elsewhere. It's a new version of "Like the Dead", an old tune from the Xecutioner's days, this track is also featured on the two song demo "Find the Arise". Later both tracks were featured on the Raging Death sampler.

Released by Metal Mind Productions on cassette.
