"The Umbersun" was recorded at Wolf Studios, London. Produced by Elend and Dominique Brethes. Pre-produced by Elend at The Fall Studios.

Re-released on April 21st 2008 by Orphika. This edition, which was carefully remastered by ELEND, features the original artwork (refused by Music for Nations at the time of the first release) and a bonus track recorded during the same sessions and initially intended for a limited edition which was never released. The album is available as digipak CD and double vinyl LP.

There are also has two digipak reissues - one, an unofficial yet legal rerelease through Metal Mind Productions in 2007, and there is another one released on the 21st of April 2008 both as the digipak and a double vinyl LP (both of these formats have a bonus track featured as the first track "Overture" (2:38), which was not present on the original or Metal Mind Productions reissue).
