Background [ edit ]
The name of the second track "What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse", is taken from the name of the band's
first release of the same name, which in turn is a quote from the 1988 video game ; the song is featured on the soundtrack for the video game Castlevania II: Simon's Quest and as downloadable content for Saints Row 2 . Rock Band Kristian Wåhlin did the cover art for the album. The end of the song "Nocturnal" features an audio clip from the movie . The song "Deathmask Divine" appears to be inspired by both the story of The Monster Squad Carl von Cosel and the 1979 Italian horror film . Beyond the Darkness
