Track 9 - "Of Michael the Archangel and Lucifer's Fall" is divided into three parts:
I. In Profundis
II. Fatum Mortalis
III. Ignis Divinus

The melody of the chorus of "Excalibur" was taken from Schubert's "Moment Musical N.5 in F Minor".
The main guitar solo of "Dante's Inferno" was inspired to Czerny's "Etude N.14, Op.740".

Video clip for "Dark Fate of Atlantis" was made by Owe Lingvall.
