Album notes[edit]

  • According to the liner notes, tracks 1–4 were recorded in May 1995 and were originally featured on the Thuringian Pagan Madness cassette EP released by Capricornus Productions in that year. Track 5 is a rehearsal recorded in JVA Erfurt prison in December 1994, under the moniker Wolfsmod. This was a solo recording featuring only D.M.D. and a drum machine. Track 6 was recorded by an anonymous member outside jail in February 1994, and was originally intended to be used on the Thuringian Pagan Madness 7-inch EP. As far as numbers 7 and 8, both were the result of a recording session of In Ketten sometime in the spring of 1995. That leaves tracks 9–10, which were recorded by Dark Mark Doom solely with the assistance of a drum machine in 1995.
