DVD reissues[edit]

The DVD reissues feature the band's discography at that time with album artwork and track listings, band and individual member biographies, an interview with Nergal, a slideshow of photos while the band is performing live, four exclusive wallpapers in Satanica artwork style (which are available in the "DESKTOP" folder located on the DVD), artwork from various demos, EPs and albums, stylistic variations of the band's logo, as well as details about the band's and their label's former websites. MMP retained the legal rights to re-release the original material in the future, which included their 2002 and 2009 DVD reissues.[5] However, the band itself only lists the original VHS release in the official discography on their webpage[6] due to the inclusion of unauthorized additional material in the DVD releases.[7]
