Wishmaster reached gold status within 2 hours of its release in Finland.

The song "The Kinslayer" is about the Columbine High School massacre (20 April 1999)

Spinefarm released a limited edition (2000 copies, first pressing) with a 3D cover. This version was only available in Finland and included "Sleepwalker" as a bonus track.

XIII Bis Records (France) re-released the album in 2001 as part of a limited box set called "Wish Box" (cat.-no. 157812 M 782), which contains an autographed and enhanced CD, a key holder and a Nightwish calendar.

The 2004 digipack CD re-release by Spinefarm Records includes the bonus track "Sleepwalker" (2:56). In that version, track "FantasMic" is also bit longer, 08:27. This difference, however, just consists of some added seconds of silence.

Produced by Nightwish & Tero Kinnunen

All music by T. Holopainen, except 3, 7, 8 by T. Holopainen/Emppu Vuorinen
All lyrics by T. Holopainen
Arrangements by Nightwish & Tero Kinnunen

Bonus tracks on Spinefarm 2007 re-release:
12. Sleepwalker (2:57)
13. Wanderlust [live] (4:34)
14. Deep Silent Complete [live] (4:24)

Re-released in 2004 on Back On Black as a limited edition double vinyl picture disc.

Released on tape by Mystic Production (MYST 249).
