Track differences[edit]

  • Track 8, "Riding the Winds of Eternity", is the same as the one found in Symphony of Enchanted Lands, only with the sound of waves at the beginning left out.
  • Track 9, "Dawn of Victory", features a brief tympani roll at the start of the track not found on the album version.
  • Track 10, "Holy Thunderforce", distinguishes itself from the original version from Dawn of Victory for the loss of most of the choir parts.
