Trivia:
- Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II was originally titled "Fuck the Dead".
- W.T.Y.D. stands for Welcome to Your Death.
- Alice in Hell was Roadrunner Records largest selling debut at the time selling over 250,000 records.
- Although original singer John Bates left Annihilator in 1985, he is credited as the co-writer of Alison Hell, W.T.Y.D., Burns Like a Buzzsaw Blade and Human Insecticide.
- The sleeve pictures a five member line up. However, in interviews, Jeff Waters revealed that this was at the behest of the record label while actually he played the guitars and bass himself.
- Wayne Darley who is credited as a bassist on the insert did not play on this album but appears as one of the guest vocalists.
