Released in North America by The End Records (cat. # TE049)

Gatefold LP version is limited to 2000 copies.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Quorthon's Bathory.

English translations:
3. Checkmate Jesus Christ
5. All Against All
6. One Makes/Thinks One's Thoughts [impossible to translate litterally into English, meaning could be also "One Concludes/Suspects by Oneself" (internally, silently)]

Re-released as gatefold LP through Back On Black in Spring 2010 as limited clear vinyl.

The earliest promo version of this album contains only 8 tracks, as "Rawness Obsolete" had not yet been recorded. It included a different edit of "Hate is the Law" as its 8th and closing track, entitled "Silent Majority" (3:56). This edit is not found on the regular promo or retail versions of the album or anywhere else in the band's discography. It is the exact same song, but with an outro-section included at the end. This outro-section was removed on the later promo and retail versions, as "Rawness Obsolete" had been tacked on as the very last, 9th track late in the process, and therefore there was no need for an album-closer outro part on "Silent Majority" (which had by now been retitled "Hate is the Law", and had now become the second-to-last, 8th track).

Re-released on May 5th, 2014 by Peaceville Records on double CD. The second disc features the whole album commented by Fenriz and Nocturno Culto.
