A video was made for "Lethean", directed by Lasse Hoile.

Katatonia released a partly re-recorded, mostly acoustic version of this album, as "Dethroned & Uncrowned" in 2013.

"The One You Are Looking for Is Not Here" is a lyric from "Walking by a Wire" on "Viva Emptiness".

"Lethean" means forgetful. Lethe, in Greek myhtology, is one of the four rivers of Hades. Those who drank from it experienced complete forgetfulness.

Recording information:

Recorded at Ghost Ward & The City of Glass in February - May 2012.
Mastered at Cutting Room.
