Exclusively "Battled" by Abbath and Demonaz.
Executive production: Osmose Productions '95.

The tracklisting on the original CD is incorrect. The correct listing is shown here.

The promo and first version of the album suffered from a bad mix, consequently receiving terrible reviews in press. Due to this, a better mix was issued to replace the original - this version is the one most commonly heard and distributed.

CD versions:
• Original jewelcase
• Digipack (two different versions exist; one with an embossed logo and title, and one without)
• Limited edition jewelcase (includes slipcover and fold-out poster, as well as the 1991 EP as bonus tracks).

Warning - Osmose CD presses from February 2001 up to around 2005 may contain a copy-protection method which renders the CD completely unreadable in PCs and certain modern Hi-Fi systems. This isn't indicated anywhere on the packaging.

Vinyl info:
• 1998 (Picture LP, limited edition)
• 2005 (Osmose Productions, limited to 1000 copies)
• 2010 (Osmose Productions, black vinyl)

Reissued on limited edition deluxe cassette by (#invalid label link ID#) in 2014. Limited to 100 copies on black and white tapes. Each comes with a set of 3 buttons and a colour card.

Music videos were made for "Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark)" and "Grim and Frostbitten Kingdoms".

All lyrics by Demonaz, except "Circling Above in Time Before Time" by Abbath.

Recording information:
