On "With Satan And Victorious Weapons":
Intro of this song is part of film The Name Of The Rose. It´s a scene of holy inquisition. Dialog:
-Because you were inspired by the devil?
-Yes... that's it.
I was inspired by the devil. I'm inspired by the devil !!!

"The Funeral Is about to begin, sir!", a sample at the beginning of "Hearse" comes from the "Phantasm" movie.

"Blackcrowned" is based on the a classical piece called The Queen's Funeral March (Procession) by Henry Purcell.

A music video was made for the title track and "Hearse."

"Castrum Doloris" is latin and means Castle of Grief.
