The CD was mixed at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland. The mastering took place on April 10 at Finnvox Studios with Mika Jussila and Nino Laurenne.

A video for the song "The Divided Heart" was shot with director Mirco Andreis (Eldritch, Macbeth, Disarmonia Mundi).

The digipack edition contains a bonus song called "Horns Ablaze" (04:23) between "The Divided Heart" and "Totentanz". The bonus track gets tracknumber 8, and the rest of the songs (8, 9, 10) move down one place (and thus become 9,10 and 11).

The Japanese version contains the bonus track 'The Open Breach' (04:56) as track #12. (Recorded during the sessions for the 'Winter Wake' album). 'Horns Ablaze' is also on the Japanese Edition of the album.
