- In The Presence Of Enemies was originally one 25 minute song, and was known as "The Pumpkin King" in demo form.
- On Friday, January 26th, Dream Theater let 50 fans into Avatar studios to record chanting vocals for "Prophets Of War" using the lyrics "Time for Change/Fight The Fear/Find The Truth/Time For Change" and shouts of "Hey" for "In The Presence Of Enemies, Pt 2". The vocals were done in both "clean" and "death growl" styles and the fans also shouted "Ass and Balls" and assorted random words, although these were not used.
- The act of letting fans in to record vocals was pulled off with mixed results, as many fans who adhered to the supposedly strict rules set in place beforehand were denied access, while fans who showed up early against directions were let in. This is likely a mistake on the part of Avatar Studios.
- Repetance is the next song in the AA series which was started with The Glass Prison and was continued with This Dying Soul and The Root Of All Evil.
- On the same day of the album's release, a special edition with differnet cover art was also be released. This contains a DVD that has 5.1 audio of the album as well as a 90 minute making-of documentary.
- The first single off the album will be Constant Motion, which will also be the first music video DT have created since Hollow Years.
- Portnoy has said the second single will likely be Forsaken, it is unknown if it will be a video or not.
- "Forsaken" was originally known as "Jet Lag", "Constant Motion" was known as "Korma Chameleon", "The Dark Eternal Night" was originally known as "N.A.D.S.", "Repentance" was originally known as "Fisheye", "The Ministry Of Lost Souls" was known as "Schindler's Lisp".
