Noise Records has screw up this release with low sound quality and simply using (shrinked) cover artwork taken from vinyl release on the front insert. The cat. number of the vinyl (N 0153-1) is printed on the back of the front insert and the band name, title and mentioned cat. number are also printed on the edge of the insert, just like it's used to be printed on vinyl sleeves. That were the reasons for putting out the release once again on CD, but this time under the banner of Black Mark Production.

I have a double LP press that has Made in Italy printed on it. The cover is poor quality both in materials and printing. The runout have the disc no. And lp side etched into them. Any info on this.
