Originally released in 1984, Play Dead's "Resurrection" is probably the group's most eclectic album. It ranges from synth-based tracks like "Conspiracy" to non-synth like "Pale Fire" and "Sacrosanct."

The first release of "Resurrection" was "From The Promised Land". When "From The Promised Land" was originally released in May 1984, Play Dead decided they were dissatisfied with the recordings. At this time, only 1,000 copies of the original LP were pressed and released. The band remixed the eight tracks on the album. It was rereleased shortly and every copy of the album that featured the new mixes had the sticker "Remix" attached to the front cover. This was the second release of "From The Promised Land." The third edition was retitled "Resurrection" and featured eight new tracks. The song "Weeping Blood" was not included on the third edition, though it was available on the first two editions, as well as the 2007 reissue.
