The lyrics on this album were actually a contest amongst band members of who could make the most outrageous lyrics.

Re-released together with "Depraved to Black" on CD in 1995 by GUN Records as a part of the limited edition DoCD of Rage's album "Black in Mind".

"Battlefield" was re-recorded by Rage for their "Extended Power" EP, with new (humorous) lyrics and re-titled "Bottlefield".

They eventually re-recorded half the album, more faithfully, and included it as bonus tracks on 2017's "Seasons of the Black".

Recording information:

Recorded & mixed at studio Wahn, Bochum, Germany in October 1984.
