The original cover art understandably created a great degree of controversy and certain versions of the album have an alternate version (the uncensored cover is shown here on top).

In Europe, the album was released in October 1976 and in the USA in February 1977. Its U.S. release date was delayed so as to not compete with the band's then-current album "In Trance", which did arrive in the U.S. in early 1976.

Recording information:

Recorded on 32 tracks at Dierks Studios, Cologne, (West) Germany.
