First press came with an exclusive band sticker.

There is a hidden 9th track (0:28) after "Of Blindness and Subsequent Seers".
There is a digipack version that doesn't have a booklet, though it has two bonus tracks:
9. Curse You All Men! (Live - At the Astoria, London July '99)
10. Sworn (Revamped by Ulver at Endless Studios)

Reissued in 2004 under Candlelight Records. It comes with the bonus tracks from the 1999 version, though they aren't mentioned anywhere on album. The reissue comes in a slipcase and includes a clip from the No Mercy Festival tour and a clip from the bands travels to the USA for their only headlining tour in America.

Artwork by Gustave Doré. Original illustrations for the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri.

Re-released in 2006 by Back on Black as Gatefold LP.

Re-issued by Candlelight Records in 2007 as a numbered limited edition boxset.

Re-issued once more in April 2014.
