This was supposed to be Necrophagia's debut full-length album in 1986, rumors say that due to (alleged) illegal activities of the band and the explicit nature of the recording/lyrics the master tape was confiscated or stolen, but a copy of the mastertape resurfaced in 1990 and was bootlegged by the fake label "Embalming Records" on black vinyl (1000 copies) and cassette tape (unknown copies). After New Renaissance Records came to an agreement with the fake bootleg label they labelled it as an official bootleg afterwards and took over distribution of the remaining copies, then released a "collector's edition" reissue on green vinyl without sleeve in a plastic sleeve. This reissue was limited to 500 copies according to the 1991 newsletter.

Tracks 1, 3, 5 and 8 were re-recorded for "Seasons of the Dead" album, some having different titles:
"World Funeral" became "Abomination".
"Hemorage" became "Forbidden Pleasure".

The songs re-appeared later on the "Legacy of Horror, Gore and Sickness" compilation album.

Originally recorded in 1986.
