Recorded June/July 1988 at Soundcheck.
The original release on Swordfish Records was released on clear and black vinyl and has a slightly different cover. It is more of a grey toned picture, whereas the Earache re-releases are just plain black and white. Contains lyrics to Avalanche Master Song, Veins and Weak Flesh. Also contains pictures not included on the Earache Re-releases. Etched into side A is "Low life motherfuckers". Side B has "Music from the death factory "88"" etched into it.
The cassette release on Silent Scream is the same as above, but also has a picture of a very young Justin and Benny. The Earache release doesn't contain all the pictures but has a new one, and doesn't have lyrics. This may possibly have been released on vinyl as well. This version also incorrectly lists track one as "Avalanche" and track two as "Master Song".
Tracks 7 and 8 are bonus tracks on the cd from some later, unknown recording session.
"Wounds" is a remixed version of "Wound" which is found on Streetcleaner.
A video for "Avalanche Master Song" was made.
This cd was re-released as Mosh 20CD on July 1st, 1995, with a white CD casing instead of traditional black case.
Remastered and re-issued in 2008 as a limited vinyl pressing. 200 copies were issued on splatter and an unspecified amount on black vinyl. This pressing has Wounds included. This also included the original artwork (grey-toned cover).
Released alongside Selfless and Us And Them as a 2013 triple-CD box set.

Well this definitely deserves some more attention. Maybe not quite as refined as albums like Streetcleaner or Pure but still just bleak and apocalyptic as hell. Dirty, punishing industrial jamz done right.
This is the water, and this is the well
Drink full and descend
The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within
