Tracks 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10 written by Jay Fernandez.

Confirmed by Lee Harrison:
Jason Morgan recorded all of the rhythm guitar tracks and the solos are broken down as follows:
Jason Morgan: Second solo on #4. #7, and the Second solo on #8.
Tony Norman: #2 (both solos), #3, First on #4, First on #8, #9, Second on #12, All on #14.
Jamie Osburne: First on #12.
Morgan and Norman do the solo trade off on Pillars, the last is both at the same time.

The first version of this CD was released by German Metal Age Recordings (Turbo Rec. follow-up label). However the label was a rip-off label and therefore Monstrosity later re-released it over The Plague Rec. as LP and Digi-CD.

Released on Olympic Recordings in the US under license from Conquest Music.

At the end of the song "In Dark Purity", someone (most likely Jason) whispers "get the gun, get the gun, shoot shoot shoot", which is a dedication to Ozzy's fiasco with the parents of a kid who shot himself while listening to his song "Suicide Solution", which supposedly had those words subliminally embedded in it.

There are 5 different versions of the CD. 2 European versions, one without lyrics and mistakes in song titles, and another version with a shape disc saw blade, lyrics and correct song titles. Then there's the Japanese version, which has a Bathory cover (Total Destruction), the South American version with 5 more seconds at the beginning of "Perpetual War", and the US version.

A music video was made for "Destroying Divinity".
