Annotation

The first four songs are "Side Hate" and the last five are "Side Winter."

When this album was released, Euronymous (owner of Deathlike Silence Records) changed the name of "Ea, Lord of The Depths" to "Ea, Lord of The Deeps" and "Spell of Destruction" to "Black Spell of Destruction". Both were later changed to the intended titles on the later Misanthropy version.

There are two editions of the DSP CD. The first one has NO Voices of Wonder address on the back (they had yet to distribute DSP at that point), just Vikernes' address, and the matrix code on the disc is ANTI MOSH 002. This one is limited to either 300 or 500 copies (sources vary), released in 1992. The second version has no adress to Vikernes, but instead the VOW address is printed on the back, and the matrix code is DURECO 01 ANTI MOSH 002. This version is from early 1993. Both version inserts DO NOT contain lyrics, just pictures of Varg and recording information. There are some minor graphic differences between versions (brightness and quality of the pressing). Compact Disc of each version has another gothic font. However, there are also two versions of vinyl pressing. Early pressings feature only Varg's and DSP address, while later pressings contain DSP address and VOW line at the bottom of the back cover. Precise number of copies for the earlier pressing is unknown, but rumored to 300.
