The first pressing came with a bonus disc titled "Pure American Metal", including songs respectively taken from the band's pervious albums Burn the Priest, New American Gospel and As the Palaces Burn, a live recording of the song "Black Label" from DVD Terror and Hubris, as well as a pre-production demo of the song "Laid to Rest"

The Japanese edition included a bonus song "Another Nail for Your Coffin" which was released worldwide in 2010 on 3-CD box set Hourglass: The Anthology The song was later included on the 15th Anniversary Edition vinyl re-release of the album

A DualDisc version was released in the United States The DVD side contained the album in LPCM 20, and Dolby Digital 51 surround sound, as well as various video clips, including the promo videos for "Now You've Got Something to Die For" intended to promote the Killadelphia release and "Laid to Rest", a short on the New England Metalfest, a "Meet the Band" and a clip from the Terror and Hubris DVD A production error in the 51 mix of "One Gun" causes the vocals to pitch shift high and low throughout the song


The album was generally well received; Blabbermouthnet gave it a 7 rating[4] Johnny Loftus of AllMusic gave it a 4 out of 5 star rating[3] He praised Blythe's vocals, saying they became, "Lamb of God's threshold of pain conduit"
