It's clear that Devin is at least a primary member. The rest of the folks are just local session musicians.

Reissued in 2005 in Germany and June 12, 2006 in USA by Century Media with the following bonus material:

11. Japan (5:17) (originally a Japanese bonus track)
12. Monday (5:13) (previously unreleased bonus track)
13. Exciter (Judas Priest cover) (6:04) (European bonus track from original version)
14. Satan's Ice Cream Truck (2:34) (Hidden bonus track from original original)

+ "S.Y.L." video clip (4:50)

Including a 12-page booklet with extended liner notes from Devin Townsend himself. As Devin recalls, "I had finished with The Wildhearts just prior to this (1994), and they were so anti-everything that I decided to take a similar approach while focusing on dissonance and just being as over-the-top as I could. Songs didn't really matter; it was just the intensity and the vibe plus lots of humor. Screaming and laughing are pretty close, I think, and I have just never been 'hard,' so we do what comes naturally, right? Right."

schopný debut, aj keď je na ňom pár slabších momentov

간간히 튀어나오는 멜로디들은 들을때 깜짝놀라게 하지만 전체적으로 많이 난잡하고 덜 다듬어진듯하다.

He fucking hates you.
