It was recorded with help of such famous engineer as Ronny Lahti who had had an experience of working with such prominent acts like Europe, Talisman, Saigon Kick and others. Their second album Surface of Pain was released in 1995 and it became their breakthrough to the American market where they went on a promotional trip. They toured Europe and Japan the same year.
