Notes

Originally released on 3rd of May 1991.
Recorded at Mini Farm Studio on April 1991.

Although this was the MLP that helped the band to sign a contract with the international Osmose Productions, initially it didn't have an impact due to the limited marketing & distribution of Decapitated Records.

The band moved from "tape recording" its rehearsals to recording in a real studio. The band was inexperienced, so was the producer (Κώστας Στρατηγόπουλος + the band) and the engineer considering this genre of music, still the band was satisfied with the result.

The artwork has been designed by Panos Tzanetatos according to Mutilator's concept, that presents Orpheus (the first to speak of one god) gazing the star Arcturo. A passage to another reality and dimension, with a different way of thinking, not like Earth, a magical world away from monotheism.

"Forest of N'gai" sample taken from Zero Kama - The Secret Eye Of L.A.Y.L.A.H..
"Intro - Ach-Golgotha (The Small One On The Cross)" sample taken from Current 93 - Nature Unveiled.

Since this is the first pressing on CD, should the format above really be listed as "Reissue"?

After heard their famous demo "Satanas Tedeum" they enshroud the atmosphere even darker than first release. 5 Tracks into mystic greek thrashing black metal... not for the faint.

Beware of the bootleg reissue on MATT black cover (original is gloss), with no inner and - easiest to spot; title running off bottom on to bottom spine.
