The album is Gwar's longest album exceeding 74 minutes, and contains Stampe's solo number: "Don't Need a Man" Hunter Jackson also returns in "The Private Pain of Techno Destructo", and there is a ballad entitled "Sammy" about the rotting corpse of Sammy Davis Jr "In Her Fear" is Oderus's swan song, and Beefcake the Mighty gives a memorable song in "Hate Love Songs" - Casey Orr's last song as a lead vocalist with the band until his return on Lust in Space

Carnival of Chaos is the last Gwar album to feature Peter Lee as Flattus Maximus; due to recurring stomach problems stemming from a gunshot wound sustained in a carjacking four years prior, he left the band shortly after the 1997 Halloween Tour

"Don't Need A Man" was not originally meant to be a Gwar song It was supposed to be just Danielle Stampe Slymenstra Hymen singing and Michael Derks Balsac the Jaws of Death on piano It ended up featuring Brad Roberts Jizmak Da Gusha, Derks sequencing the upright bass part, the piano and the guitar and Stampe Derks produced the track, but received no credit Additionally, Derks wrote "Hate Love Songs," and was initially going to sing the lead, but opted instead to have Orr Beefcake do it He is still heard in the background

Approximately nine minutes after "Don't Need A Man" is a clip of "Drop Drawers" This was supposed to appear on the album, along with a complete version of "The Private Pain of Techno Destructo" The latter had to be changed, due to Paramount's refusal to give permission to use music from the 1967 Star Trek episode, "Amok Time" there is a "Slave Pit Single, released after this album, that features it The former, which included a cover of Billy Thorpe's "Children of the Sun," had to be cut, save for a short clip at the end "Drop Drawers" can be found on Slaves Going Single, an extremely rare B-sides collection released between We Kill Everything and Violence Has Arrived on Slave Pit Records The latter can be heard, minus the unlicensed cover, on the album just after Techno sings "You'll just make me", and the full song except for a slight cut-off of Techno at the end on the Rawgwar Slave Pit Single

"Sammy" is the longest song on this album, despite "Don't Need A Man"'s 12:40 track length most of it is silence; the actual song is a little less than 4:30 long Clocking in at 6:57, it and the title track from their 1999 follow-up, We Kill Everything, were the longest songs by the band until the song "War on GWAR" 7:21 was released on 2017's The Blood of Gods

Songs from Carnival have not been in the band's setlists for a number of years except for the group occasionally playing "Penguin Attack" and "Back to Iraq" Unlike We Kill Everything, where the band readily admits their dissatisfaction for the content explaining the absence of songs from that album, they have yet to give a definitive reason why The songs "Pre-Skool Prostitute" and "Hate Love Songs" were part of Gwar's 2013 Madness At The Core Of Time Tour setlist
