First of Sepultura's more hardcore influenced albums.
First album without founding member and vocalist/guitar player Max Cavalera.

"F.O.E." stands for Freedom of Expression; a song originally released on the 1971 «Vanishing Point» movie soundtrack and later used as the opening theme for a Brazilian TV show «Globo Repórter».

Brazilian as well as Japanese edition has 2 bonus tracks:
16. Gene Machine / Don't Bother Me (Bad Brains cover) (2:53)
17. Prenúncio (5:08)

"Choke (Rough Mix)" was only released on Radio Kerrang! – Volume 7 The Devil’s Jukebox Compilation (1998).

"Floaters in Mud (Acoustic)" is available only on Lançamento Nosso de Cada Dia Brazilian Compilation (1999).

Two early demo versions of "Choke" (recorded before Derrick Green joined the band), one with Chuck Billy (Testament) and the other with Andreas Kisser on vocals were published on the internet.

First pressing edition was released as a CD in a jewel case housed in a cardcase cover.

A very limited edition contains a CD in a cardsleeve housed in a black cardboard envelope with a red pop up Sepultura tribal S inside + card with release information.

Re-released remastered on Feb-12-2008, together with Nation as Against + Nation 2 CD set.

A video was made for "Choke".
