The album was produced over a course of two years.[1] The X-Ecutioners built the album's basic tracks around samples from albums and films suggested by Mike Patton, who finalized the album.[1]


The album's musical style draws from free jazz and glitch.[1] It is themed around a war between the two vastly different musical styles. The album contains various samples from uncredited films, including kung fu movies and Dirty Harry.[1] One of the larger samples includes dialog from actors John Hillerman and Dennis Olivieri, taken from the soundtrack of the film "The Naked Ape."[3]
