The bonus track "Into The Frost Of Winter" (6:21) can be found on the 2000 re-release and on the double vinyl release.

In 2003, the album was re-released in a limited edition tin box containing the above mentioned bonus track.

Due to a mix-up in Orchid's mastering process, the end of "Requiem" was placed at the beginning of "The Apostle in Triumph". The band has expressed regret for this, and says it was of no fault of their own.

The original Century Media pressing in the US had the band logo printed on the cover (much to the band’s dismay).

Released by Candlelight as a 2xLP picture disc, limited to 2000 copies.
