It is the first album since Bat Out of Hell III: The Last at Bat to feature songs by Jim Steinman, though Steinman had no involvement in the recording. The album was produced by Paul Crook and Steven Rinkoff, and consists entirely of songs previously written for other projects and albums, with nothing made specially for this record. However, the songs "Renegade Angel" and "Devil's Playground" had never been recorded by anyone prior, effectively counting as new songs.
The album artwork by Julie Bell shows Meat Loaf and a young Steinman from behind, staring up at the "Four Bikers of the Apocalypse", astride the motorcycles used on the Bat Out of Hell trilogy and Dead Ringer, speeding towards the duo.
