A few songs from the album are known from their endings, which include secret messages, like Kuolleitten laulu's "I can't take this anymore!" which correctly played says "Minä en kestä enää!", the same as "I can't take this anymore!" in Finnish. Another song like this is Destination Hades - when played backwards it says: "I want to play a game. Search the alternative endings for your U.S.C.H., and the prize will be yours! Let the hunt begin!". This hints the listeners to listen the song endings backwards.
