Quorthon explains the name:
"We wanted people to just read out "The return..." - as in a second album or a follow-up - and then flip the album over to look for a tracking list. Not finding one, what they got was this apocalyptic poem with the song titles woven into it. Only after listening through the album to the end would you get the full title of the album: THE RETURN OF THE DARKNESS AND EVIL.''
In CD reissues beginning from 1991 the last 26 seconds of "The Return of Darkness and Evil" is made into a separate track, an untitled outro.
Recorded and mixed at Electra Studio, Stockholm, Sweden in February 1985.
All titles published on the Black Mark label.
Direct metal mastered at Sonet Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.
