  • Because the official translation of "40:1" song from the former album was criticised by Polish fans, a contest was set for the best translation of the "Uprising" lyrics to Polish. The winning translation was chosen as the official.[14]
  • The riff in "White Death" has been borrowed from Ankie Bagger's "Where Were You Last Night".[15]
  • The video for "Uprising" was a re-enactment of Polish resistance during World War II and contained the actor Peter Stormare as well as Polish actors Monika Buchowiec and Mateusz Damięcki.[16]
