One of only three Emperor outputs to feature Mortiis on bass (the other being the Emperor MLP and the As the Shadows Rise EP which features re-recordings of some songs off this demo).

First release is a self production by Emperor:
- Cover folded out.
- Recorded onto studio tapes.
- Hand numbered and autographed.
- The original cover is the chimaira pictured below. The picture above is from the Wild Rags version.

Re-released in 2004 by Candlelight Records. Bonus material includes very rare, exclusive footage of pre-Nightside rehearsals plus live outtakes from the band's first tour.

Reissued by Candlelight Records in 2007 as a numbered limited edition boxed set.
2007 reissue includes the "Emperor" EP.

Three different versions of the intro exist:
- Original version (00:45) featuring distorted growling only.
- Emperor/Wrath of the Tyrant (compilation) versions (01:09) featuring ambient keys and percussion.
- Wild Rags reissue version (02:20), possibly also on other versions. Ambient keys and some weather samples.

Recording information:

Recorded on bad equipment (4 tracker) during 8-9 & 11 May '92.
