Bonus track for Japan:
12. This is My Own (4:49)

The reason for the title name "The Art Of Balace" is because Shadows Fall believes that it's possible to mix elements of rock, metal and hardcore together as one (which is self evident in the album sound).

LP released by Lifeforce Records (200 white wax, 800 black wax).
