Several songs were originally recorded by Torment in 1991, after Juan Ricardo joined the band. However "She Rides the Sky" and "Addicted to Fear" both pre-date this era, being sung by original Torment singer John Marshall as early as 1989, although "Addicted to Fear", while musically identical, had different lyrics and title, originally called "A Coming Storm".

The band originally intended the album to include another song written by Torment with Juan in 1991, "The Return of The Thousand Year Reich", but with the band being brought to Germany to record the album the German label refused to release the song due to its controversial subject matter, dealing with Adolf Hitler being resurrected and taking over the world, including a section of "Seig Heil" group vocals. Ricardo described the song before a 1991 Torment performance as "what happens when our worst nightmares come to life".

Recording information:

Recorded at F.M. Studios, Frankenthal, Germany in August 1992.
