First edition with "ABSU B.V.I.T.R.I.O.L." written on the frontcover, white back cover, and various spelling errors, black disc looks the same as the 2nd press.

The full name of this release is "Barathrum: Visita Interiora Terræ Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem", which is an alchemical motto that translates to "Visit the interior of the earth and purifying you will find the hidden stone", and refers to a process of internal spiritual purification.

The band recorded a promotional video, which contains three songs: An Involution of Thorns, Fantasizing to the Third of the Pagan Vision and An Evolution of Horns. Its length is 11:40, almost drawn up as a short movie with open and end credits.

Recording information:

Produced by Absu and Gothic Records. Executive production by Osmose Productions. Recorded during the 1993 Prime Equinox somewhere in Texas.
All music written and composed by Absu.
