I have not been able to verify whether "Triumph of Death" is a real rehearsal track or not. It contains a lot of noise and drop-outs, but even buried under all the bad production, to me it sounds different from either of the demo versions or the "Apocalyptic Raids" version.
"Revelations Of Doom" is just the normal studio version (with lower sound-quality) that appears on the "Apocalyptic Raids" CD-reissues and the "Death Metal" compilation LP.

There are several versions of this bootleg on CD, including several older presses on "Gulliver Smith Records" with various disc color variants, and a version (of Greek origin, I believe) with an outer slipcase, using a negative image of art from the original demo on the cover. I think only the newer bootlegs used the winged demon demo art on the cover, and the older ones have this color "queen"/fantasy artwork shown above.
The intro and outro are unlisted, and are parts of "Triumph Of Death" and "Revelations of Doom" respectively, played back at about half-speed.
"The Third of the Storms" is actually shortened very slightly. If you've heard the original ugly-colored LP boot of "Satanic Rites," there's a bad drop-out during the repeating riff cycle right before the vocals start. So it looks like the CD version was sourced from the vinyl and the bootlegger decided to edit out the sound defect. I believe the other versions of the CD are also this way (this might be a problem with the original tape, as even the official "Demon Entrails" version of the song is also this way!).
The back insert states this was recorded live in Switzerland, and the false idea that this is from kind of Hellhammer live concert STILL persists.

There's also a later slipcase version for this bootleg that uses artwork from the original demo on the cover.
Note that this CD (and virtually all other known "Triumph of Death" bootlegs, both on CD and vinyl) is missing the original Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor organ intro.
Obviously sourced from vinyl due to the surface noise.
"Power of Satan" begins at 5:15 on track 13 and flows continually into the rest of the song on track 14. You may recognize the main riff from a later metal classic...
