The album title is a reference to the Slayer song "Raining Blood". The cover art was done by the same artist that did the cover art for Slayer's 1986 "Reign In Blood".
The album runs for exactly 1 hour (60 minutes)
The backing track for "Trust Nobody" is a sample from "Champagne Bath" by Sonata Arctica
The sample of "White Nigger" is "Through The Fire And Flames" by the power metal band DragonForce
