Re-released as 2nd press only, together with CMFT Rec by Metalcore Rec. LP and CD (CORE9).

CD bonus track:
10. The Sign of the Pentagram [3:54]

Reissued by Deadline in 1999 and Blackend in 2005 with an alternate cover.
Both versions are barebones layout and contain no lyrics or art.

Left : original cover.
Right: digipack / jewelcase reissue.

The 1999 Deadline reissue besides lacking in art / lyrics has a tracklisting error on the back cover, it lists track 9 as ''Where the Serpents Ever Dwell'', track 10 as ''Outro - Sumerian Cry (Part 2)'' and track 11 as ''The Sign of the Pentagram''.
However the actual CD is correct with the 10 tracks, and in their correct order.

Re-released 2009 on Candlelight / Plastic Head w/ bonus track "The Sign of the Pentagram", and original cover art by Kristian Wahlin, but incorrect lyrics in booklet.

Re-released in 2011 by Century Media. It divided track 9 into tracks 9 and 10.

Re-released in 2013 by Back on Black as 180 gram limited edition coloured vinyl.

Recording information:

Recorded in October 14-29, 1989.
This was the first full-length album ever recorded at the famous Sunlight Studios, Stockholm, Sweden.
