Transcript of the liner notes on the album back:

And so the Noise, Filth and Fury, Metal Noise Mix, and Pure Filth, thundered forth into the desolate night, like a gargantuan engine of death an immense mechanical annihilator which blazed out of the darkness, shattering all auditory barriers within its path, and imposing a state of lawless cacophony upon the minds of all those it encountered. Its black, guttural sound rolled forth across the barren heavens, enshrouded the metropolises of the world with its dark abandon, raping the innocence of mankind, and enchanting all and sundry with a promise of even greater achievements to come, proclaiming future deeds of a magnitude and immensity hitherto unrealised in the annals of history. The new age of total warfare marches on, uncontrollable, irrepressible, invincible .. . come on turn it up.
