Recorded at Morningstar Studio from November 2007 to January 2008.

Released by Indie Recordings and licensed to Nuclear Blast for the following territories:
Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the rest of the world outside Europe, except Australia and Russia.

The digipack release includes a DVD featuring a "making of" documentary, interviews, and live clips.
A box set edition limited to 500 copies included the digipack and a necklace, which is a pendant on a black string. The pendant is a 1-1 replica of the claw that's seen on the cover of the album.

Obsidian Claw took the inspiration for the cover artwork from the game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. There's a clear similarity to the covers of both things. The Kolossus cover has similar colours as the oblivion game cover had. Obsidian got the claw for this cover by creating several icons and taking inspiration from the Oblivion logo.
