"A Batalha De Al-Ashbounah (Ou Lixbona MCXLVII)" is a true story based in the re-conquest of Portugal, in that time known as Condado Portucalense (Portuguese Shire) to the moorishs in 1147.

"O Adamastor" has lyrics of the portuguese poet Luís Váz de Camões (1524 / 1580) taken of the medieval book "Os Lusiadas" (1571) and repute the tale of a giant monster, that lived in the the Cape Of Turmoil (cape of South Africa) and now is known as the "Cape Of Good Hope", by the Portuguese mariners in the times of sea discoveries.

Exists a hidden track in the end that is a kind of instrumental middley of the Burzum's song "Stemmen Fra Tårnet (The Voice From The Tower)".

"Immortalis Factus" means "Immortalized Facts".
