*: Guest vocalist on "Predator's Saliva" (both not present on the Finnish version of the song, "Petoeläimen kuola") are Joey (Tornado) and Pat Henry (Swashbuckle). Please leave this note in place to avoid confusion.

A music video was made for "The Steel" (English version of "Rauta").

"Ievan polkka" is a cover from an old song written by Eino Kettunen based on a traditional polka tune, but first recorded by Matti Jurva in 1937. In 2006, folk band Loituma's version of the song was mixed with frames from a Japanese anime called Bleach, creating an internet meme called Leekspin.

Though "Manala" could be understood to roughly mean "underworld" in English, Manala is a mythic place found in old Finnish folk literature that could be better translated as "realm of the dead". Mana is a kind of "god of death" and the -la suffix means that it's his place.

Recording information:

Recorded at Petrax Studio, Hollola, Finland, Wave Studio, Lahti, FInland and Villvox Studio, Lahti, Finland.
