All songs written & arranged by Pantera.

The title of this album comes from the movie "The Exorcist". The priest asks Raegen to prove she is the Devil, to which she responds "that would be too much of a vulgar display of power".

Sean Cross is the man on the cover shown being punched. Contrary to popular rumors, Cross was never actually punched according to Brad Guice who took the image. The myth that he was a fan of the band and was paid 10 dollars for each punch to the face to be caught on camera was dispelled by Guice as he explained in an interview that the dynamic effect to make it look like a real punch was all just clever photography and editing.
