Originally recorded in 1981 intended to be Manilla Road's second album, the results were unsatisfactory to the band and so it was scrapped in favor of writing for the album Metal. After half of the scrapped songs existed for 20 years as a bootleg called "Dreams of Eschaton" (which would also have been the original title in 1981), Monster Records finally cleaned up the master tapes and reissued this album in its entirety in December 2002 under a different name.

The vinyl version of the album (done also by Monster Records) has been released in the formats:
Black vinyl - 600 copies
Blue vinyl - 300 copies
Clear vinyl - 100 copies
coming to a total of 1000 copies distributed worldwide.

Reissued on CD in 2011 by Forged in Fire / Rockadrome Records. This release has a 16-page full color booklet with lyrics, liner notes and photos and a 4x4 color sticker.

Reissue credits:
Initial pre-mastering and transfer by Steve Falke at Cornerstone Studios.
Final audio mastering, editing and restoration by Dennis Bergeron.
Executive producer: Dennis Bergeron.

Recording information:

Recorded at Miller Sound Studios.
