The cover art was changed in order to be store friendly, but retains the original artwork in the booklet. A live video of the song "Bloodletting", taken from the Killadelphia DVD was included on an enhanced portion of the disc in QuickTime format.

The inlay of the CD case reads "Der Teufel Nennt Mich Bruder", German for "The Devil Calls Me Brother".
