Recorded and mixed by Jonathan Ewald & Draconian at Studio Kuling during 1999/08/02-06 and 1999/08/12-14.
All songs created and arranged by Draconian between 1995 and 1999.
Lyrics written by Anders Jacobsson between 1995 and 1999.

Cauda Draconis consists of two parts:
Part I: Black Diamond Eyes
Part II: The Star of Kliffoth

Cover art painting by John Martin (19 July 1789 - 17 February 1854).

"The Closed Eye of Paradise" is an album that dealt with the mystical dark theme of Lucifer and his fallen angels, the true face of God, and the forthcoming battle.
Unfortunately, the recording, suffering from a bad production, was again not up to Draconian's high standards and was not released before 2000, after the band had completed various improvements to the original recording.
