It contains hit songs like Israelism and La Plage de Saint-Tropez. "Israelism" was banned from MTV for allegedly making fun of Jewish culture (despite the fact that two of the band members were Jewish). The album didn't do as well as Massive Luxury Overdose did. The Gods of Earth And Heaven reached #1 in Russia, Greece and Hong Kong. In Russia the album spent four months at #1. In the Finnish album charts, it reached # 11 and sold over 22 000 copies. The Gods Of Earth And Heaven sold 1,7 million copies worldwide. In some parts of Europe it was considered as a flop but it became their most successful album ever in Russia, and to date, Army of Lovers have been the only foreign act in Russia to achieve diamond status besides Kylie Minogue's 2001 album Fever.
In the end of June 1993, Army of Lovers performed in several TV shows in France, Spain and Italy.
The first single from the album, Israelism, is about Jean-Pierre Barda's way back to his Jewish culture and history.
