Two different versions of this album exist. The band had to record the album twice because their record company was not satisfied with the original result. The first version was recorded in Berlin, and was released on vinyl by Metal Blade Records in the United States in 1986. The second version was recorded in Nuremberg, and was released by Steamhammer Records in their home country of Germany in the same year. According to Tom Angelripper, the second recording is "completely different" and features a bonus track named "After the Deluge". Destructor (Michael Wulf) played guitar on the first version, while Assator (Uwe Christophers) played on the second.
