Like Roots that preceded it, the album has a variety of guest musicians and incorporates tribal influences – Japanese percussion elements are added with the assistance of Japanese taiko group Kodo.
The songs "Against", "Choke" and "Tribus" were released as singles, with a music video accompanying "Choke". The video featured footage from the Barulho Contra Fome (Noise Against Hunger) concert that was the first gig of the Against tour. This performance included guest appearances from the Xavantes tribe, who had featured on Roots (as documented in the "Choke" video) as well as Mike Patton, Jason Newsted, Carlinhos Brown, original Sepultura guitarist Jairo Guedz and Coffin Joe (whose "blessing" of the band performed during this concert turned up as a B-side entitled "Prenúncio" on the Tribus EP).
In 2006 Louiche Mayorga started a compilation album project with another bands from Venice, California. Just a few days later he met by chance with Grant Estes and Amery Smith, he told them about the project and they instantaneously accepted to join it. Mayorga recorded some tapes and sent them to Dan Clements (Excel founding member and frontman) who called him that same night to form new band together. With the line-up complete, the band was called Against. In May 2006 they made two shows at "The Good Hurt Club" in Venice, both concerts were benefits to help launch the compilation album Welcome 2 Venice (disc which continues the previous compilation released in 1985 with songs by their original bands). At the time of going to the studio Mayorga recruited Kevin Guercio (original No Mercysinger) as a second vocalist for the group. They recorded two tracks for Welcome 2 Venice: "Camarillo" (with Clements) and "Roll the Dice" (with Guercio). The entire recording, release and distribution was conducted by Louiche Mayorga's independent label "Built On An Ounce". After the release of the album there were rumors about a possible Excel reunion, however Clements said he had no intentions of reforming the band and did not want anyone to take Against as a return of the group.
