Reissued in 2005 in Germany and June 12, 2006 in USA by Century Media with the following bonus material:

11. Japan (5:17) (originally a Japanese bonus track)
12. Monday (5:13) (previously unreleased bonus track)
13. Exciter (Judas Priest cover) (6:04) (European bonus track from original version)
14. Satan's Ice Cream Truck (2:34) (Hidden bonus track from original original)

+ "S.Y.L." video clip (4:50)

Including a 12-page booklet with extended liner notes from Devin Townsend himself. As Devin recalls, "I had finished with The Wildhearts just prior to this (1994), and they were so anti-everything that I decided to take a similar approach while focusing on dissonance and just being as over-the-top as I could. Songs didn't really matter; it was just the intensity and the vibe plus lots of humor. Screaming and laughing are pretty close, I think, and I have just never been 'hard,' so we do what comes naturally, right? Right."

Heavy As a Really Heavy Thing Comments

level   (75/100)
schopný debut, aj keď je na ňom pár slabších momentov
level   (70/100)
간간히 튀어나오는 멜로디들은 들을때 깜짝놀라게 하지만 전체적으로 많이 난잡하고 덜 다듬어진듯하다.

He fucking hates you.
