Additional notes

The concept of the album mainly focuses on the aftermath of the battle between God and Satan. It begins by continuing from the end of "The Finisher," which is the last track on their previous album Son of the Morning. "The Finisher" describes the final battle between God and Satan, and it ends in God severing the horns of Satan. Now, as the starting of the aftermath in this album, Satan's horns have fallen to the ground, causing both God and Satan to vanish. Now all of humanity is left wondering what happened, so the first half of the album describes everyone coming to the general consensus that God and Satan are both dead and that they have killed each other in battle; thus, now there is no fear of Hell or reward of Heaven.
The album also follows two characters, one being an overzealous religious type who feels betrayed that he had devoted his life to God and that God has abandoned him. This drives his faith to unfurl, and it reveals that he had a shallow understanding of God. The other character is his daughter, who was a profound atheist, but became proven wrong after witnessing the battle between God and Satan. This delays her questioning of Christians and why they read God and Satan in different, less violent ways than she has just seen them. Towards the end of the album, she finds a group of believers who give her all the answers to her questions. The album ends with the destruction of the world, which occurs due to everything that has happened.

Historical tracks

Oh, Sleeper wrote two songs that are based on past murders. The fourth track, "Hush Yael," narrates the story of Samir Kuntar and the murders that he committed at the age of 16. The sixth track, "Dealers of Fame," is a first-person narrative telling of the Dnepropetrovsk maniacs, who are infamous for their leaked online video that depicts their torture of an elderly man in a forest.
