It was the band's first studio album in five years, since The Razors Edge (1990). The album also featured the return of former drummer, Phil Rudd, who had been fired from the band in 1983 as a result of problems with rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young. The three singles released from this album were "Hard as a Rock," "Cover You in Oil," and "Hail Caesar." The album was produced by long time Slayer producer, Rick Rubin who would later produce Metallica's latest studio album Death Magnetic. Rubin had previously worked with the band to produce the song/single "Big Gun," which was released two years before on the soundtrack to the movie Last Action Hero.
