Notes

The album concept follows the classification of geologic ages during the "Precambrian" period. Every song that is not an instrumental has two titles: a primary one that refers to a geologic age and a secondary one that is derived from the lyrics.

Disc 2 contains a data track with band pictures and biographical information.

Artwork adapted from the digipak version; same booklets but without the digipak with diecut holes. And the second CD is not black, but silver.
