Was released as CD and Gatefold-LP Limited to 500 copies.
And it is an compilation of the 5 EPs released in 1996.

Re-released in 1999 by Earache with a different cover (left).
Every song released on 5 double-sided 12" EPs. Every vinyl has different colour.

For the first release Mortiis used artwork by famous artist John Bauer, but didn't have the rights, so the booklet says "artwork by unknown" and this caused a lawsuit by the museum that owns the right to the art.

The second release had new (more simple) artwork with just some pics of Mortiis himself.

The third release came with slipcase and this time Mortiis got himself the rights to the artwork by John Bauer.

All music made and arranged by Mortiis '95-'96.
Recorded and mixed at Silver Dragon Studio Jan-March '96.
