The original Deathcrush LP from 1987 had a pressing error that made the color
of the sleeve come out pink, not red.
The 1993 cd/lp were both properly printed red, however the 1998 bootleg picture
disc LP is pink like the original 1987 LP.
The tape release has a different cover.
On some editions, "(Weird) Manheim" and "Pure Fucking Armageddon" are combined
into one track.
The outro only appeared on the original demo tape, original LP and many
bootlegs, it was unlisted on the cover and can also be downloaded via the band's
Silvester Anfang was created by Conrad Schnitzler of Tangerine Dream, who gave Mayhem permission to use the song.
