The cover of the EP is a photograph of the Fantoft Stave Church after it was burned down on 6 June 1992. It is believed that Varg Vikernes took the photo himself[2][3]. In 1994 he was convicted of burning down the Fantoft Stave Church along with other historic churches.[4]

The bass guitar on the EP was played by Samoth from the Norwegian band Emperor.
