It follows 1989's Frozen To Death and is followed by 1994's Hold Your Breath...Before You Die.
John LeMar, who began producing the band's album artworks from 1984, created the art for Evolution of Violence, which depicts Charles Darwin dressed in soldier uniform with a cigar in his mouth, holding his gun on a church assembly.
