BackgroundEdit

All lyrics are written by P. K. of Abigor apart from those by J. R. R. Tolkien, who is even credited in the album booklet.

The final track, "Over Old Hills", is based on the song "Trapped and Scared" from Protector's solo project, Ice Ages debut album 'Strike the Ground'.

The album's cover was adapted from 'Middle Earth', a painting by Roger Garland, and from a picture of the Ottenstein reservoir in the Austrian Waldviertel, showing the ruins of castle Lichtenfels.[2]
