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”.
"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.
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..."
