The first track, "Overlord," starts with a sample from Caesar's climactic speech from Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. The sample at the start of the next track, "A Unilateral Disgust," is from Hot Shots! Part Deux. The sample at the start of "Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead" is from Patton. The fifth sample is at the end of track seven, "Execution of Reason," which is from Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Touch of Satan episode. The tour in support of the album included headlining the final Metal for the Brain Festival in Canberra, Australia.
