In English, the album title means "Saga of the Ravens", suggesting Odin's two ravens, Hugin and Munin (Thought and Memory). These two ravens would fly out over the world each day to return every evening and tell what they had seen.

Digipak Edition features two bonus tracks:
13. Drekar (04:12)
14. Hævnen (03:43)

Some versions also come with a re-recording of the track 'Brages Bæger' from the band's "Tvende Ravne" demo as extra track. On those versions, 'Brages Bæger' is track #11, with 'Havets Plage' moving to #12.

Tracks # 4 and 11 (aswell as the bonus track 'Hævnen') are re-recordings of tracks from the 'Svundne Tider' demo.
Tracks # 2 and 10 (aswell as the bonus track 'Brages Bæger') are re-recordings of tracks from the 'Tvende Ravne' demo.

English translations:
1. The Wake
2. Two Ravens
3. The Song of Hatred
4. The Journey to the Land of the Giants
5. Berserk Fury
6. The Daughters of the Heath
7. The Feast
8. The Minstrel's Box
9. The Old Hag of the Forest
10. Pretty Maidens
11. The Scourge of the Sea

Also, the bonus track Brages Baeger means "Brage's Cup".
