Produced by Bruce Fairbairn. Recorded at One On One Studios and A&M Studios in Los Angeles, CA, January - April 1998. Final mastering completed 6/24/98 by George Marino. Strings arranged by Shelly Berg. Track 11 is only available on import version of the album and CD Singles and is sung by Ace.
Drums on all of the album’s tracks, except "Into The Void," were performed by Kevin Valentine. The majority of the lead guitar work was by Tommy Thayer (apparently offered some $20K for the effort) with some having the sonic signature of Paul Stanley (but not necessarily being by him). Some notes indicate that Bruce Kulick played bass on "Psycho Circus" and "Body And Soul," though those were probably the demo versions. Whatever the case, it's a mess!
