A limited-edition collection of demos recordings for this album was released as The Afterman: Descension (Big Beige Demos).
Additionally, select songs from this album were recorded live and included on The Afterman (Live Album).

Continuing from the The Afterman: Ascension, this album follows the Amory Wars storyline, and concentrates on the character Sirius Amory. Chronologically, this album precedes Year Of The Black Rainbow, which itself was the prequel to the previous records, making it the earliest story in the Amory Wars.
