The cover artwork was created by Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman.

In January 1994, Blackmoon (RIP) and I pooled all our money and savings into a recording session and pressed 1,000 copies of our 4-track debut Mini-CD. Reaching the significant milestone with an epic 30th anniversary is of course very honourable for me and the band. Three decades of Swedish Black Metal filled with precious memories. The time has come to reflect on what started this incredible story, an epic 30-year journey full of experiences and an unbreakable bond. And that is why we have breathed new life into these songs. Lord Ahriman and Dark Funeral
