"Apocalyptic Raids" was originally released in 1984 as a 12" EP; it is Hellhammer's first and only official record. Boasting four tracks, this record has served as an influence to such varied and respected bands as Napalm Death and Sepultura, both which recorded cover versions of "Messiah".

Hellhammer would split up only three months after recording this EP, and later regrouped as Celtic Frost. [Fischer 2000, page 80.] "Apocalyptic Raids" would be reissued six years later, boasting new artwork and two bonus tracks.
