Original vinyl release on Black Dragon Records. Concurrent US release licensed to Leviathan Records.

Trivia:
- A ''half live'' version video was made for ''Solitude'', with Messiah Marcolin on vocals.
- "Leif Edling would like to dedicate "Solitude" to himself" is the inscription on the insert.
- The voice at the beginning of "Demons Gate" is Leif Edling's, slowed down.
- "Under the Oak" was already written as part of the "Tales of Creation" concept, originally released on the same titled demo, and later on the album of that title.
- "Demons Gate" is lyrically based on Lucio Fulci's 1981 horror classic The Beyond.
- "Black Stone Wielder" is Leif Edling's personal interpretation of The Three Wise Men, and it contains melody from the Swedish 19th century song "Gläns över sjö och strand" a.k.a. "Betlehems stjärna".
- The terms "doom metal" and "epic doom metal" came from this album's title.
