Suffocation originally intended to record again with Scott Burns and Morrisound Recording, but like with Malevolent Creation and their Stillborn album, Roadrunner Records refused to pay for that studio and forced the band to record elsewhere. The result was fans and critics alike hating the sound. Unlike Malevolent Creation, however, Roadrunner Records kept Suffocation under contract and allowed them to record with Scott Burns for Pierced from Within. The album is also noteworthy for being Mike Smith's last involvement with the band until the reformation. The situation with the recording process for this album is one of the major reasons for him leaving the band.

Tracks from the Breeding the Spawn tracklist were re-recorded for inclusion on five Suffocation albums to date:

1. Beginning of Sorrow - (appears on Pinnacle of Bedlam, 2013)
2. Breeding the Spawn - (appears on Pierced from Within, 1995)
3. Epitaph of the Credulous - (appears on ...of the Dark Light, 2017)
4. Marital Decimation - (appears on Blood Oath, 2009)
5. Prelude to Repulsion - (appears on Suffocation, 2006)
6. Anomalistic Offerings - (appears on the Japanese version of Suffocation, 2006)
7. Ornaments of Decrepancy
8. Ignorant Deprivation

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at Noise Lab, West Islip, NY.
