All music, arrangements and lyrics by Cerberus. Produced by Cerberus.

Self-Released demo with hand-written inlay and blank tape labels on black shells (the brand of high quality tape the band used physically imprints the letters A and B into each side of the shells themselves).

All 75 original copies were dubbed by the band directly from the masters onto one specific model of one specific brand of cassette, and included hand-numbered and hand-addressed 8.5"x11" glossy print of their official promo band photo of the era, more recent then the band photo on the "Cleveland Metal" LP. These numbered prints were also limited to 75, made specifically to come with the demos. The tapes and photos were never sold separately.

These songs would be re-recorded in higher quality, utilizing a much higher end recording studio, in December 1985, alongside 3 new songs. Also, by that time Phil Halse had gained much technical experience as a singer compared to the 1984 recording (their 1983 studio debut "Rampage" was all-instrumental).

Program repeats on both sides, but both sides are different mixes with many significant differences. The A-side is the standard mix, and B-side version is an alternate mix done in Dolby B. This mix uses slight changes to the levels of certain instruments in certain sections to change the emphasis and create a different feel. One example is the acoustic guitar is raised in the middle instrumental break of "Regrets of a King", creating a more melancholy and progressive feel, before the bass is raised briefly during that same section, drawing emphasis to several bass lines and leads that may have gone unnoticed on the standard mix.

Each copy came with an 8.5"x11" glossy band photo, which are hand-numbered and have the bands contact information hand-written on the back.
