Black vinyl, gatefold cover, white inner sleeve, 8-pages 10" black and white insert with lyrics and Warhammer drawings.
Earache Records sticker on back cover ("Play loud" and stuff).

The artwork is taken from a 1988 book called Rogue Trader while the title "Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness" is the name of another Warhammer book inspired by Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000.


Also released on limited edition coloured vinyl.

Reissued in 1995 and 2005. This last reissue by Earache Records has an alternate artwork by John Sibbick, who redraw a similar themed artwork to the original but without any Games Workshop copyrighted elements. The band highly condemns this version and asked fans to boycott it, as they were not involved with the reissue and received no royalties from its sales.

Reissued in 2013 as a limited edition pressed from the original master tapes in Full Dynamic Range audio with a bonus previously unreleased DVD performance filmed on three cameras from the legendary 1989 ‘Grindcrusher’ tour. More info about DVD bonus of 2013 issue, it is called "Live at Nottingham Rock City 14.11.89"

level   (100/100)
그냥 명반이 아니다 최고의 데스메탈 명반이다
level   (90/100)
워해머 느낌이 많이 묻어나는(?) 앨범으로 이처럼 무게감 있는 데스메탈 앨범이 또 있을까싶다.
level   (90/100)
UK Death Metal giants Bolt Thrower really knows how to write an amazing record. They bash on the guitars incessantly, producing a tone quite unique to their sound. Good songs from start to finish!
level   (85/100)
육중한 기타 톤이 매력적인 명반.
level   (85/100)
1집에 비해서 훨씬 들을만해졌다. 끊임없이 shredding 하는 기타는 정말 별미.
level   (90/100)
명밴드의 명반
level   (90/100)
앨범 자켓처럼 현란하고 미래지향적인 사운드는 절대 아니지만 둔중하고 질량감 느껴지는 리프와 솔로가 잘 어우러진 정통 데스메탈. 정통 데스메탈에 대해 조금씩 알아갈때 꽤 좋은 앨범일듯 하다. 4집과는 사운드의 차이가 있다.
level   (90/100)
밴드의 퀼에 비해서 너무 관심이 없는듯하다. 올드스쿨의 진수를 보여주는 밴드 워햄보덕만이 즐길수있는 재미는 덤
