Additional notes
Recorded, mixed, re-recorded and re-mixed at Rich "Funeral" Bitch Studios December 1987 - March 1988 on 16 track facilities.
According to an interview with Bill Steer, the initial recording was completely ruined by Mike Ivory so the band had to hastily re-record and re-engineer the album in order to meet the label's deadline.

The above cover is the original "gore" cover, which was later banned and replaced by a "clean" cover, which was drawings of a human similar to those found in biology books. The exact same cover was used for "Symphonies Of Sickness" except with a different color scheme. In the year 2002/2003, the gore covers were put back.

"Reek Of Putrefaction" was re-released on CD for the first time in 1989 by Earache Records (cat.-no. MOSH 18CD for the uncensored version, GMOSH 18CD for the censored cover). The CD (76:25) contained both, the "Symphonies Of Sickness" and the "Reek Of Putrefaction" album, but omitted the "Reek Of Putrefaction" tracks # 5, 6, 8, 13, 19 and 21.

Reissued on vinyl 2002, European pressing x1000 on 220g black vinyl, US pressing x 1000 (700 blue vinyl, 300 clear vinyl).

September 2008 reissue: Fully remastered on a DualDisc (combined CD and DVD) in a deluxe digipak packaged in a white "medical" bag with expanded artwork. It includes part 1 of the mini-documentary series entitled "The Pathologist's Report" on the DVD side plus the 13 tracks of the "Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment" demo-tape as bonus-tracks on the CD side.

The lyrics here are taken from the booklet.
