The "Forever Is The World Tour Edition" combines this CD with the Addenda EP.

The album was recorded at Room 13 studios in Oslo with producer Alexander Møklebust (Zeromancer, Seigmen, Gate, Monomen, Delaware). The mastering was handled by Bjørn Engelmann at the Cutting Room in Sweden.

Available in three different versions: a limited digipack with one bonus song "Empty (04:03)", a very limited double vinyl version with two bonus tracks, and a regular jewelcase.

Re-released on March 12, 2010, with a bonus EP, "Addenda":
01. The Breaking (vinyl bonus track "Forever Is The World")
02. Beauty In Deconstruction (the original version from the "Storm" sessions which is one minute longer and unreleased)
03. Frozen (Ambrosius Remake)
04. Empty (digipak bonus track on "Forever Is The World")
05. Deadland (Tommy Olsson Remake)
06. Revolution (Flip Wicked Remix)
07. Highlights (digipack bonus track on "Storm")
08. Illusions (Zensor Remix)
09. Empty (E&A Wedding Mix) (made for the wedding of the band' webmaster and wife)
10. Forever Is The World (Chamber Version) (a completely new filmatic arrangement of the title track made by Pzy-Clone (The Kovenant))

Staff review by

Theatre Of Tragedy is a truly good band. I am not just saying this because I respect their work a lot but also because they have had a versatile career and they seem to have been remaining faithful to their ideas no matter what may be said about them.
My expectations concerning the new album Forever Is The World were high ever since I heard the samples and, gladly enough, the album did prove to be a strong one.

  Too bad they broke up. I bet Liv is very happy. I think the artwork for this album is their best.
