Also released in the following formats:
1998 Merciless Records - Picture Disc Vinyl
1999: Mystic Records - Cassette
2008: Primitive Reaction - CD/LP

The 2008 re-release includes three bonus tracks:
6. Anno Satanas (Demo Version)
7. Stormtroopin' (Ted Nugent Cover - Previously Unreleased)
8. The 13th Son (Previously Unreleased)

Additionally, it comes with more extensive liner notes, an extensive interview with Rick Scythe and General Diabolical Slaughter, never seen before photos and new artwork by Juha Vuorma (Skeletal Season artist).

On the original version of the EP "Threshold of the Usurper" after the song "Threshold of the Usurper" ended, there is a pause and then the demo track "Anno Satanas" begins. The 2008 re-issue corrects this separates the songs into two tracks.

Re-released in cassette format by Night Birds Records in 2013 limited to 500 copies.
