Πειθώμεθα νυκτὶ μελαίνῃ (Homer) — Motto on the back cover (slightly misspelled there, hopefully correct here). The band translates it as “Let us be convinced by the black night” and “Let us give in to the call of the black night”. (Transliteration: “Peithómetha nyktì melaíne”.)
The booklet has “music:” credits for each individual track, but also mentions “All music by Elend”. (The other members probably had some contribution.) Both credits are represented as ARs.
The album was released simultaneously under two versions; the barcode starting with 400 belongs to the version distributed in Germany/Austria/Switzerland by SPV GmbH, while one starting with 338 was distributed in the rest of the world. The only difference between the two versions is the printed back cover.
