- CD1 has a special multimedia track for "Ravenous"
- CD2 is called "Rare & Unreleased" and has a special multimedia track for "The Immortal"; songs (covers or rare and unreleased bonus tracks) are all performed during the time former vocalist Johan Liiva was in the band, so Liiva is the vocalist on all songs. CD2 is only included with the EU/US version of the album.

"Diva Satanica", "Damnation's Way" and "Hydra" were previously available as bonus tracks on the Japanese version of the 'Stigmata' album.
"Diva Satanica" and "Hydra" were also previously available as bonus tracks on the European limited digipack version of the "Burning Bridges" album.
"Fields of Desolation '99" was previously available as a bonus track on Japanese version of the "Burning Bridges" album.

There were huge problems with the release of the album in the American and European markets, there was a delay of almost a year after it was available in Japan.

First release with Angela Gossow on vocal duties.

Also released on LP limited to 1,000 copies.

A music video was made for the song Ravenous
