»Mean Streets« contains 12 tracks which were recorded by Bruno Ravel in New Jersey. Ravel also mixed the album while Bart Gabriel took care of its mastering. Artwork was provided by Gyula Havancsák (ACCEPT, STRATOVARIUS, BRAINSTORM etc.) who captured the galloping style of the new material skillfully – without missing the band’s typical seal style, of course.
