All music written by Mikael Åkerfeldt.

Opeth's first progressive rock album, which lacks the death metal overdubs and extreme metal influences.

This album was supposed to be released together with "Deliverance", but Music For Nations decided to delay "Damnation" for a couple of months.

First pressing came in a digipack.

The vocal melody in the chorus of "To Rid the Disease" is borrowed from a track recorded by Mikael Åkerfeldt's side-project Sörskogen, "Mordet i Grottan".

Recording information:

Recorded during the 22nd of July and the 4th of September in Nacksving studios and Studio Fredman, Gothenburg, SWE. Engineer by Opeth and Steven Wilson. Mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson.
