Trivia[edit]

  • "Death Rap", in addition to being the title of the nineteenth track on the album, is also the title of Necro's fifth studio album.
  • The beat used in "Evil Shit" was taken from the 1976 horror film Blood Sucking Freaks, which Necro has admitted being a fan of on numerous occasions. The chorus of the song was taken from a line in a Necro song, "Bury You with Satan", released three years prior on his second studio album Gory Days.
  • "The Dispensation of Life and Death" uses samples from the song "Apoteosi del mistero" performed and arranged by swedish progressive rock band Morte Macabre, featured in Lucio Fulci's City of the Living Dead, originally composed by Fabio Frizzi.
  • The track "Push it to the Limit" uses lyrics from "Scarface (Push It to the Limit)", a song from the 1983 gangster film Scarface, in its chorus. The beat was also sampled from a classic kung-fu flick called "the guy with secret kung-fu"
