Logo by Christophe Szpajdel (Bel).

This album is divided in two parts or chapters, "Capítulo I - A Arte É Longa" (Chapter I - Art is long) that is from the track 1 to 9 - the part of the original themes and "Capítulo II - A Vida É Breve" (Chapter II - Life Is Short) track 10 to 13 - the part of the cover songs, except "Solstício D'Inverno / Exitus" that's original.

That's a 14th nameless hidden track in the end with 03:07.

The theme "In The Kingdom Of Superstition" is an old song from 1996 of Sacerdos Magus, reformulated by Paulo Vieira (Nyx Sludgedweller) in 2000 for the first album of The Firstborn, "From The Past Yet To Come" and named "Titans" . Sacerdos Magus decided to resurrect the song, but he didn't wanted to use the original "Titans" lyrics written by Bruno Fernades (The Mindwalker) for The Firstborn album, so he made a new lyric version of his own track named "In The Kingdom Of Superstition".

English translations:
"Ars Longa, Vita Brevis..." is latin for "The Art Is Long, Life Is Short".

04 - I Hate And Love, I Suffer...
11 - It Was Night And They Took
12 - When I Die
13 - Winter Solstice
