Released in 1985, the band's second album had an ominous pall of doom and gloom, enmeshed in a sound both primitive yet also Wagnerian in its vast scope. Many claim this was a massive inspiration for black metal bands later in the decade. In truth, though, none matched what was here. This release includes the "Emperor's Return" EP as well as a remix of "Visual Aggression," and the concept and art direction of the release was done by the man behind Celtic Frost, Tom G. Warrior. 2xLP includes two posters.
