All songs by Dronjak/Cans, 6 by Dronjak/Cans/Elmgren, 5, 8 by Dronjak.

"Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken" and "Take the Black" are sayings from the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of books by George R.R. Martin, though in the books it is written as "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," and the lyrics to "Take the Black" do not seem to be connected to the story.

Also released as limited and numbered boxset (1,000 copies) containing the limited edition CD in a metal box, two Hammerfall glasses, a Hammerfall scarf and a certificate.

The limited metal box CD is available separately (10,000 copies) and includes an enhanced part:
- Blood Bound (video clip)
- Making of "Blood Bound" (video)

The limited edition digipack includes an enhanced part:
- Blood Bound (video clip)
- Picture Gallery

The "Tour Edition" of the album contains an inflatable guitar and two bonus videos:
Video 1 - Blood Bound
Video 2 - Making Of Blood Bound Video

"Knights of the 21st Century" ends at around 10:15, and is followed by almost two minutes of silence and a short hidden section.

Recording information:

Recorded at Lundgärd Studios, Denmark, September 4th - October 25th, 2004.
Mixed at Mi Sueño Studios, Tenerife, November 4th - 25th, 2004.
