Official music video (made in 2017 in the context of a re-release):
- Pleasure to Kill.

Mille was notably inspired by the film Faces of Death (1978) during writing/recording. He claims that every song on the album is concerning a different way to die.

Includes printed inner sleeve.

First album to feature the band's unnamed demon "mascot" on the front cover.

The intro track "Choir of the Damned" runs for 0:46 on the original issues of the album. An extended version running for 1:39 was introduced on the 2000 reissue and all subsequent reissues.

Recording information:

Recorded at Musiclab Studio, Berlin, 1986.
Mastered at Studio-Nord-Breman, Germany.
