"Nightfall In Middle-Earth" is a concept album based on J.R.R Tolkien's "The Silmarillion."

Japanese release by Victor Entertainment (VICP-60295) includes two bonus tracks:
23. Nightfall (Orchestral Version) (05:38)*
24. A Dark Passage (Instrumental Version) (06:05)**
* The track does contain 'normal' band instruments so it's not a pure orchestral track. The biggest difference is, this version has less vocals.
** This version does have vocals, only less.

The 2007 remaster bonus tracks:
23. Harvest of Sorrow (03:40)

"N.I.M.E." was recorded at Twilight Hall Studios, Krefeld, Karo Musik Studios, Breckel (HH, Germany) and Sweet Silence Studios (Copenhagen, Denmark) from September 1997 through March 1998, except Piano recorded at Vox Studios, HH, Germany in January 1998.
