"Cursed Realms (Of the Winterdemons)" is technically a cover song of the Immortal song of the same name; however, the music itself is different from the actual song (but Sunn O))) used the same lyrics from the song.)

"Báthory Erzsébet" also is considered a loose cover version of the song "A Fine Day to Die" by Bathory.

The vocals of the song "CandleGoat" are taken from "Freezing Moon" by Mayhem and were written by Dead in 1991.

Malefic, who is claustrophobic, was locked in a casket to record the vocals for "Báthory Erzsébet".

The first song refers to the sole member of Tasmanian black metal band Striborg.
