All tracks written by Johan Edlund except for "Amanes" (Johan Edlund, Anders Iwers).
"Amanethes" is a Greek-Turkish word, describing a kind of very slow Eastern-oriented song which usually contains the word "aman". "Aman" can be translated as “show some understanding”, or it declares “pain” and "sadness". According to a 2008 interview to mainman Edlund, the title stands for "mourning songs, like elegies".
"Katarraktis apo Aima" (track 7) means "Waterfall of Blood" in Greek.
"Misantropolis" (track 8) merges the Greek words "misanthropia" ("misanthropy") and "polis" ("city").
"Meliae" (track 11) refers to the nymphs of the ash tree known as Meliae or Meliai in the ancient Greek mythology.
The "Via Dolorosa" (track 12, "Way of Suffering" in Latin and Italian) is the street in Jerusalem that Jesus walked carrying his cross on the way to his crucifixion.
"Circles" (track 13) ends with a fading female voice that recites Corinthians 13:4-8 and 13:3 from the Bible.
This album marked Tiamat's return after 5 years. Tellingly, it opens with the lyrics "It's been a long time but we are here again / It's been five long years of thunder, lightning and rain".
Recorded at The Mansion in Greece.
Additional recording at Studio Mega in Sweden and Cue in Greece.
Mixed and mastered in January, 2008 at Woodhouse Studios in Germany.
