Re-released in 2012 by Kyrck Productions & Armour. CD is limited to 1000 copies. CD leatherbook in red or black, limited to 100 copies. It includes the "My Angel" single, 2 tracks from 1996, 4 pre-Constellation rehearsal tracks from 1994, and a rare pre-production version of "The Chaos Path". Vinyl version available also, with three colour vinyls available (Black, Purple/Black or Yellow/Black), each limited to 300 units.

A bootleg reissue called "Reconstellation" was released in 1999; it features the 1997 expanded tracklist. It was pressed with two different covers :
- black/white band-picture
- one which depicts an aurora-lit northern landscape (probably a reference to the original "Aspera Hiems Symfonia" album).
On both versions, "Icebound Streams and Vapours Grey" is called "Wintry Grey", the title the track would be given in its rerecorded form on the "Aspera..." album, but the actual song appears in its original "Constellation" version.
