A 3-song promo single with the album version of "The Sword" and edits of "The Woodwoman" and "The Lake" was released to promote this album. Both edited songs are only slightly different from the album versions.

Recording information:

Original material was recorded during three sessions in February and October 1988 and in June 1989 at the Heavenshore Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.

Updated material was recorded in June and July 1995 at the Hellhole Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.

The Heavenshore original material was engineered by Boss, while the Hellhole updated material was engineered by Rex Luger. Mixed in February 1996 at the Rat Cellar Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.

Music and lyrics by Quorthon.

This album was originally recorded in 1989 and was intended to be the fifth Bathory album, but the album was not immediately released and had not been finished properly. Because of this, Quorthon was worried that it drastically presented a departure from the band's original black metal sound, so the project remained in the vault until it was finally redone in 1995. According to interviews, around 40% of the original material dating from the 80s was re-made - the remaining was untouched. This album falls right in line with the Viking era of Bathory.
