In the 1993 Decapitated Records MC/CD/LP release on the back of the booklet/sleeve there is a "Warning" note about the bootlegging of this particular album by the notorious Wild Rag Records.

However, the band considers the Wild Rags release to be more legitimate than the Decapitated Records release despite both, in essence, being bootlegs. This was confirmed in an interview as follows: "Because at least Wild Rags released the format we designed. Technically, because they dropped us in November 1992, they had no right to release the album at all, but since they had no intention of holding to their word and send back to us the layouts and DATs, there was nothing we could do. The Decapitated version looks nothing like what we designed for them in the spring of 1993 (which was completely different from the Wild Rags version). So, as far as we are concerned, it is a bootleg. From misspelled names to words omitted from the songtitles, the Decapitated has many marks of a rank amateur".
Link for confirmation:

The intro to "The Edge of Forever" (a.k.a. "Aion") and "Stillbirth Machine" contain samples from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey and "Aion" is sample from "Requiem for Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Two Mixed Choirs & Orchestra" by Gy├Ârgy Ligeti, Hungarian Jewish composer of contemporary classical music.

Recording information:

Recorded in 1991, the album wasn't released until 1993 and even then without the permission of the band.
