Unusual for a Japanese release, this originally came sealed in shrinkwrap which was a new trend seen in the early to mid 80's primarily by Sony Records releases in Japan whereas most other record company's records were never sealed. Came with an obi and a 4 page insert sheet with liner notes by Masa Itoh and the Japanese lyrics transcriptions. The front and back pages were parallel to the color inner sleeve bags of foreign releases (color photos, lyrics and credits)

"Rising from darkness where hell hath no mercy and the screams of vengeance echo on forever, only those who keep the faith shall escape the wrath of the Metallian... Master Of All Metal."
