First Deathlike Silence CD pressing with no barcode. Booklet has no lyrics, just a fold-out cover with pictures of Hellhammer and Euronymous inside. Colouring of the building on the front is blue.
"De Mysteriis Dom. Sathanas" means "Lord Satan's Secret Rites", or at least that's what Euronymous wanted to write. In fact, the phrase isn't written in correct Latin.
However, the little dot after "dom", as seen on the original cover, abbreviates "domini", so the title means something like "about/of Lord Satan's mysteries".
Also "Mysterii" is not only translatable as mystery, but also as secret worship/ritual/rite. So, when pluralized as it is in the title, "Mysteriis" can indeed translate to Secret Rites, and Euronymous's intention with the title actually turned out very accurately.
The murder of Euronymous by Varg Vikernes happened right before the initial release of the CD. Accordingly, the family of Euronymous asked Hellhammer to remove all bass lines from the album, because Varg's contribution didn't deserve to be on the CD, in their opinion. Hellhammer promised that he would replace bass lines with his own, but he didn't know how to play bass, so the CD was left with Varg's bass lines, although not heard as well as the other instruments because of it being lowered. All the CD's contain on the back "A Tribute To Euronymous" with promo photos of only Euronymous and Hellhammer. It doesn't show Attila, Varg or Snorre W. Ruch being held responsible for the recording of the album, the only persons credited are Euronymous and Hellhammer.
The lyrics of Life Eternal were originally written by Dead as a gift to Bull Metal, who played in Masacre and Typhon. Later on, the lyrics were used in De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. As a posthumous tribute to Dead and Euronymous, Typhon used the lyrics for Life Eternal in their album Unholy Trinity.
Front cover is a drawing of the Nidaros cathedral located in Trondheim, Norway.
A bootlegged rehearsal of this album called From the Darkest Past was distributed sometime in the early 90s, featuring instrumental tracks recorded on May 16th 1992.
Recorded at The Grieg Memorial Hall 1992-'93.
