The actual name of the song "Welcome Princess of Hell", was supposed to be "Welcome Princes of Hell". It was a title misprint, where the lyrics were correctly written in the original pressing but the title wasn't. The distinction can also be heard in the song (the prince "is" vs. prince "s"), as well as the plural connotation of the lyrics "I'm alone with my friends, We will be back, we will be back". Nonetheless, what is printed on the actual album stands as the official title.

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at "Easy Sound Recording", Copenhagen, Denmark in May 1984.
