Digipak/Japanese bonus track:
13. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest cover) (2:24)

US Bonus track (taken from the Dragonheads EP):
13. Into Hiding (Amorphis cover) (3:49)

A lot of the tracks from this album are re-recorded songs from the band's demos.
Demo I: Track 5
Demo II: Track 6
Demo III: Tracks 1, 2, 4, 10, 11

On the 2008 US re-release of this album, it lists Amorphis' cover "Into Hiding" on back tracklist and in production notes in booklet, but omits the actual track. However, this is not the case with all of the 2008 US re-releases, just some of them. Number unknown.

Recording information:

Recorded in November 2000 at Sundi-Coop Studios in Savonlinna.
