All keyboards and synthesizers by Andre Matos. Analog synthesizers and samplers programmed by Fernando Bastamante. All strings concept and arrangement by Andre Matos. Strings on "At Least a Chance" and "Prelude to Oblivion" by the Kubala Strings Quartet. Violin solo on "Moonlight" by Renata Kubala.

"Moonlight" is originally composed by L. van Beethoven as "Moonlight Sonata".

Despite having his picture on the (original European and subsequent resissues) album sleeve and being credited as the band's drummer, Renato Graccia did not play on this album. All drums were actually played by Sérgio Facci. The original Brazilian pressing, and the first Japanese (Victor) pressing feature Guilherme Martin's photo on the sleeve.

A video was made for "Living for the Night".

Re-released on CD and LP by Massacre Records in 1992.

Re-released in 1997 by Paradoxx Music in a 2 in 1 edition with the "Soldiers Of Sunrise" album.

Re-issued in 2013 in cardboard sleeve remastered by Hugo Mariutti and with 3 bonus tracks:
9. Prelude To Oblivion [demo tape]
10. To Live Again [demo tape]
11. At Least Chance [demo tape]
