Suffocation originally intended to record again with Scott Burns and Morrisound Recording but like with Malevolent Creation and their Stillborn album, Roadrunner Records refused to pay for that studio and forced the band to record elsewhere. The result was fans and critics alike hating the sound, unlike Malevolent Creation however Roadrunner Records kept Suffocation under contract and allowed them to record with Scott Burns for Pierced from Within. The album is also noteworthy for being Mike Smith's last involvement with the band until the reformation. The situation with the recording process for this album is one of the major reasons for him leaving the band.

Tracks from Breeding the Spawn were re-recorded for inclusion on four Suffocation albums to date: "Breeding the Spawn" on Pierced from Within; "Prelude to Repulsion" and "Anomalistic Offerings" on Suffocation (the latter found on the Japanese version of the album); "Marital Decimation" on Blood Oath; "Beginning of Sorrow" on Pinnacle of Bedlam.

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at Noise Lab, West Islip, NY.
Mastered at The Hit Factory DMS, New York, NY.
Produced by Paul Bagin and Suffocation.
