What A Joke represents a transitional period in the history of Deliverance. Having recorded two of the more groundbreaking albums to come out of the Christian metal scene in the melodic speed metal and thrash of Intense Records releases Deliverance and Weapons Of Our Warfare from 1989 and 1990 respectively, the group was at a crossroads musically. Vocalist and rhythm guitarist Jimmy P. Brown II, a veteran of the speed metal and thrash scenes since the mid-eighties, desired to take Deliverance in a different direction, while guitarist George Ochoa, just getting his feet wet far as either style concerns, wished to stay the musical course. It led to the two butting heads and ultimately going their separate ways but not before recording 1991 third Deliverance album What A Joke (also Intense).
