“Förtvivlan, min Arvedel” opens with a female voice singing a verse from “You Are My Sunshine”, a song written in the 1930s by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell.
“FFF” is dedicated to Kvarforth’s mother, Susanne, who died from a heart attack in the beginning of 2010. “FFF” stands for “Från födseln förlorad”, meaning “lost since birth” in Swedish.
Recorded and produced at Slaughterhouse Studios, Sweden.
All music and lyrics are written by Niklas Kvarforth except for “I nattens timma”, written by Swedish progressive/art rock band Landberk.
The first guitar solo on “Människa o’avskyvärda människa” (03:35) is by Huss, the second one (04:40) is by Amott. Kvarforth shouts their respective surnames before their solos.
