Comes in a 2-fold digipak with transparent disc trays.
Most of the material on this album is taken from its 3 parts vinyl counterpart, A Place Called Yesterday, Today Never Happened and Tomorrow Is A Promise.
It also contains some extra tracks and interludes which only appear on this CD version, as well as a few previously released tracks.
Tracks 1-00 and 2-00 are hidden tracks placed before the first regular track of each CD. Both were previously unreleased and appeared later on Cardiac Platinum Collection 004 and To Sing Of Desecration respectively.
Ophidian chose to keep the CDs almost unmixed in order to feature full-length tracks.

    This is one of the most innovating and progressive albms in industrial hardcore. Well done productions with that explicit Ophidian Style make this album to a real example for other producers out there. The album ranges from more melodic piano-influenced ambient tracks to brain-cracking hardcore to cold industrial and IDM tracks. this is really great stuff and Ophidian deserves all the credits putting something as daring as this album on the market.

      Ophidian hits us again with another brilliant, completly original, experimental industrial, melodic hardcore album. To back this CD up, Enzyme released three 12" records with tracks from this album.

      Betrayed By Daylight is similar to Blackbox, in a way. While this CD is way more experimental, as it seems Ophidian included alot of drone ambient/noise influences in these productions, the CD is still dark and unique. No artist is similar.

      Ophidian hits us with three, two new, melachonic melodic emotional, yet hard hitting dark tracks which feature his amazing paino work. Angel and The Middle Children are possibly the two best and most popular tracks features on this album, and the 12" releases. Both contain beautiful paino work which add to the track, and make them totally unique. The Middle Children uses samples from the film 'Fight Club', backed with the paino, and melody, this, in my opinion, is the best track on the album. The samples really speak a great message, that being against the media, and how much control it has over everybody. Ophidian is the 'punk music' of the hardcore scene.

      While Angel and The Middle Children are the two 'feature' tracks of the album, there are loads of others. Not so much melodic like those two, but still completly unique sounding.

      If you havent heard this, get it as soon as you can.
