The album peaked at #34 on the Billboard 200.

The intro of "Doom over Dead Man" is placed in the pregap of track 10. However, most CD ripping software adds the pregap to the previous track. This causes a tracklist error where the intro of "Doom over Dead Man" appears at the end of "A Beast Am I". In this case the length of track 9 is 5:14 and the length of track 10 is 5:55. The error exists widely on digital versions of the album including iTunes and Amazon.

Track 2 is misprinted as Töcks's Taunt on most back covers.

In Norse mythology Surtur is the leader of the fire giants and the oldest being in the nine worlds.
