Released with a printed inner sleeve.

Track A1 is titled "Nocternal Obeisance (Intro)" on the center label. ('Nocturnal' consistently misspelled 'Nocternal').

Some promo copies were distributed with a gold stamp on the cover that says: "For promotion only - Not for sale - CBS Records, Sweden" - which is the only difference to the retail copies.

Leif Ehrnborg, a then-top class Swedish bodybuilder, posed for the cover of this album, at the Swedish National Opera.

"Equimanthorn" was included on the "Gummo" soundtrack.
"Call from the Grave" was used in Grand Theft Auto IV: Lost And Damned.
