Total length:


  • The band members were 17 when they recorded this album, with the exception of Thomas, who had just turned 18 two months before the recording started.
  • The whole album was recorded in one week throughout one take.[3]
  • Lead singer and guitarist Thomas Erak has the original album's cover art tattooed on his left arm.
  • "The Last March of The Ents" is about the Destruction of Isengard from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
  • "The Adventures of Allan Gordon" is about the book The Iceberg Hermit.
  • "F.C.P.S.I.T.S.G.E.P.G.E.P.G.E.P." has the speculated meanings:
    1. The widespread opinion [4][5][6][7] is that "F.C.P.S.I.T.S.G.E.P.G.E.P.G.E.P." stands for one of:
      • "Fuck Condoms, Premarital Sex Is The Shit! Get 'Em/E'r Pregnant, Get 'Em/'Er Pregnant, Get 'Em/'Er Pregnant!"
    2. According to the guitarist's personal LiveJournal account, the song name matches exactly with a personal saying as described above.
    3. According to the band's FAQ, "No comment, and even if you figure it out, it doesn't mean anything." (Presumably, the title is a joke that does not mean anything related to the lyrics or the song's meaning itself.).[8]
