Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Interview with Fenriz about his compilation
  2. ^ The title for Burzum's track was taken from original DSP release with a mistake made by Euronymous – "Ea, Lord of the Deeps", instead of (correct) "Ea, Lord of the Depths". The error stayed because Fenriz was unaware of the original title.
