The last track Doom Over Dead Man is reported on the back of the album as being (7:32), but actually skipping to the track or ripping it produces a song that's (5:55) as reported here. There's a (1:37) instrumental part hidden in the pregap between tracks 9 and 10 that can only be heard by rewinding/playing straight through on CD player, on PC it's enough to rip the image+cue and split into tracks with pregaps included at the beginnings, which will produce tracks without losing pregaps.

The pre order for Surtur Rising has the following bonus tracks:
11. Balls to the Wall (Accept cover) (5:22)
12. War Machine (Kiss cover) (3:35)

Japanese version bonus track:
11. War Machine (Kiss cover) (3:35)

iTunes bonus track:
11. Aerials (System of a Down cover) (3:39)

A music video was made for the song "Destroyer of the Universe".
