Limited to 250 copies, all on orange vinyl.

Housed in a gatefold jacket with numerous misprintings and typos.
On the back cover:
"LIMITED EDITION" is printed over the white numbering box on the back cover in white ink so only the part that is accidentally printed outside the box is readable (as "ION").
"/250" is printed partially in and partially out of the numbering box.
Track B1 "Babylon in Ruin" appears as "Babylon in Ruins"
Track B3 "In Den Qualen Der Hölle" appears as "In Den Qualen Der Holle" (missing the umlaut)
In the liner notes inside the gatefold:
"JUDAS ISCARIOT's long lost 1998 album" appears as "JUDAS ISCARIOT'sl ong lost 1998 album"
"unleashed" appears as "unleased" (twice)
"the band's priorities" appears as "the bands priorities" (no apostrophe)
"private" appears as "priavate"
the label name "Ascension Monuments Media" appears as "Ascension Monument Media" (with no "s" at the end of "Monuments")
"serving as proof" appears as "servicing as proof"
"unique" appears as "uni que"

Tracks A1 and B5 are other versions of the tracks on March Of The Apocalypse.
Track A2 originally appeared on Under The Black Sun.
Tracks A3 to B4 originally appeared on None Shall Escape The Wrath.

The catalog number is derived from the runout etching.

The official release date is 11 September 2018, but copies were available for sale at various locations in August.

These were sold by distros for less than half the price AMM was charging. Who is buying this shit? Horrible packaging, scum record label.

Don't even know where to begin. That statement inside the gatefold is mind-boggling, why would anyone even remotely consider printing a statement along the lines of 'this is really not a bootleg unlike internet trolls want you to believe' on his own release? Getting all defensive certainly won't do their credibility any good, quite the opposite I'd say.

Also, I don't really see how this counts as 'an intentionally high quality vinyl reissue' for which there were 'no corners cut' and for which there is 'no price too great' (apparently not, since these retailed at US$ 35). Let me mention a few points of interest:

1. The cover is a simple stock photo someone pulled off the web within two minutes: https://www.pexels.com/photo/full-moon-illustration-713664/

2. The title on the front cover hasn't even been centered properly, it's at least an inch off.

3. The label credits on the back cover are totally illegible: https://image.ibb.co/cFZDD9/JI_AASS_cred.png

4. The text in the white area designated for displaying the limitation number is seriously misaligned: the black text has been largely placed outside the box. It also features white text on a white background: https://image.ibb.co/ddMoYK/AASS_gatefold_back.png
