Housed in a gatefold jacket.

Originally released on CD by Side Effects in 1992.

Xaxa/Primordial was recorded live at Unsound Festival, Krakow, Poland on 10-12-2010.
The performance included elements from The Monstrous Soul and an extract is included on this release.
The Monstrous Soul was originally conceived and recorded specifically for a CD release and, like all Lustmord albums, structured as one piece for that format.
For this vinyl edition the running order has been reconfigured and Primordial Atom edited into two parts to ensure optimum sound quality.

Produced at Anterior Research November 1990.
Remastered in July 2011.

Printed on back cover: "Burning World Records 2010"

Does anybody else get distortion on the track "Primordial Atom"? Every time the recurring, deep, droning vocal sample comes in I get a distinct crackling sound, which is not present during other portions of the track.

Also, I would rather sacrifice volume for the sake of having it fit on one side of the record.
