The Violent Sleep of Reason was inspired by a Goya painting called "The Sleep Of Reason Produces Monsters." For the cover, the band once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for Koloss and The Ophidian Trek as well as the new images for each of the 7 albums and 3 EP's featured in the 25 Years of Musical Deviance box set. The album was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
