The murder of Euronymous by Varg happened right before the initial release of the CD. Accordingly, the family of Euronymous asked Hellhammer to remove all bass lines from the album, because Varg's contribution didn't deserve to be on the CD, in their opinion. Hellhammer promised that he would replace bass lines with his own, but he didn't know how to play bass, so the CD was left with Varg's bass lines, although not heard as well as the other instruments because of it being lowered. All the CD's contain on the back "A Tribute To Euronymous" with promo photos of only Euronymous and Hellhammer. It doesn't show Attila, Varg or Blackthorn being held responsible for the recording of the album, the only persons credited are Euronymous and Hellhammer.
