Artwork: Nico & Theresa

The album was released in a velvet digipak version. It has the same booklet as
the usual Deggial version and different cover artwork, but the cloth material
makes it a rare collector's item and one of the most expensive digipaks in the
history of Nuclear Blast. Unfortunately the pins have proved to break very
easily, both in transport and in regular use.

Rating: 9 Good quality/interesting music all over the album's length, althought not so much experimentation, things that make this one of my Therion's favourites.
