Released in the US by Combat records, and in Europe by Music for Nations. The two versions are essentially identical, save for the actual label on the vinyl.

"Sirens" and "The Dungeons are Calling" were recorded together, in one single 24 hour session. The greater part of those songs was released on "Sirens", while the remaining became "The Dungeons are Calling".

Later CD reissues have kept the cover, though sometimes replacing the original logo (seen on the right) with the later, more angular Savatage logo.

There is a 1994 rerelease containing the tracks "Fighting for Your Love" and "Sirens (live)," and a 2002 Silver Anniversary Collector's Edition containing "Metalhead," "Before I Hang," "Stranger in the Dark" (these are from Gutter Ballet demos), and a hidden track. Both were released on Metal Blade Records.
