Disc 2:
Tracks 3 - 7 form "The by the Gods Suite"
Tracks 8 - 10 form "The Legends Suite"


Interesting fact : the song "Fire of Ecstasy" is an evolved version of "Call for the Exorcist" released, fifteen years ealier, on Exorcist's album "Nightmare Theatre" (the songs are different, but some riffs and lyrics are clearly identical).
