Additional notes
The original "Gods of the Pit" demo tape sold out the entire pressing of 500 copies and gave the band cult status in the underground. This resulted in the re-release of the demo, entitled "Gods of the Pit pt.2 (Paragon So Below)". However, the re-release and the original demo are two different items, as they have different track lists, with the exception of the first two tracks.

Belial started as a black/death metal band. With the loss of guitarist Jukka Valppu, the band headed in a more progressive rock/punk direction. The album "3" features material drastically different than that which appeared on the first releases, and is considered gothic rock/punk. The album''s title is also a nod to Led Zeppelin, as rather than naming the release, they dubbed it "3" since it was their third album.

Three of Belial members were involved at grunge-rock band named Autumnfire in 1994/95. These were Anttila, Kellokoski & Lehtosaari and they''ve done 1 promo-demo in 1994.

Compilation Appearances:
- "As Above Pt. II (Unreleased 1993)" on Shit Hits Volume One (E Records, 1996)
