The original Deathcrush LP from 1987 had a pressing error that made the color
of the sleeve come out pink, not red.
The 1993 cd/lp were both properly printed red, however the 1998 bootleg picture disc LP is pink like the original 1987 LP.
There are many bootleg versions, in all thinkable fashions, the Posercorpse Picture Disc from 1998 is a bootleg.
The tape release had a different cover.
On some editions, "(Weird) Manheim" and "Pure Fucking Armageddon" are combined into one track.
The outro only appeared on the original demo tape, original LP and many bootlegs, it was unlisted on the cover.
It could previously also be downloaded via the band's official website.
The outro appears in a "supermix" on the LP - it runs faster than on the MC.
The intro is a composition by Conrad Schnitzler of Tangerine Dream. Contrarly to popular belief, Schnitzler did not create the piece specifically for Mayhem: when Euronymous
asked for an intro he just gave him a random piece of music he found in his archives, it became "Silvester Anfang".
