Bonus tracks on the limited edition:
11. The Cross and You (04:14)
12. Death is Just a Feeling (Alternative Version) (05:24)

Limited "Earbook Edition" comes with the two aforementioned bonus tracks on disc 1, and a bonus CD containing instrumental versions of tracks 1-10.

A pressing error occurs on the bonus disc of the first press of 2CD-editions. The last few minutes of the instrumental version of track 10, "The Great Mystery" are missing and the song ends abruptly. Nuclear Blast will supply those who bought this erroneous version with a replacement bonus CD that does not have the pressing error.
