Recorded at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio in Norway during August and September 1998, „Provenance of Cruelty“ was expertly mixed and engineered by Torbjørn Akkerhaugen, produced by Akkerhaugen, MACTÄTUS, and Samoth, and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio. This reissue, released by Northern Silence Productions under exclusive license from Napalm Records, features the original cover art by Petagno, logo by the Riddick Brothers, and an adjusted layout by Olaf Martin for NORTHERN SILENCE to accommodate both CD and LP formats.
