Whoracle is a concept album which describes the past, present, and a hypothetical future of the planet Earth. Jotun is a foreshadowing of the main concepts where a society is crushed and broken after an apocalyptic event. Episode 666 seems to be the narration of this apocalyptic event which is, perversely, televised. The songs leading up to this tell a story of the rise and fall of a global society. The Hive and Jester Script Transfigured describe this technologically advanced society and an utopian world which is demolished by human nature in the next two songs. The inclusion of the Depeche Mode cover, Everything Counts, is a poignant way to imply that the people who built then destroyed their society realized their folly after it was too late.
The first press vinyl edition on Nuclear Blast Records released in 1997 has a bonus track titled Re-Cycles which is Acoustic Medley from Black-Ash Inheritance with a new title. The second press vinyl, this time on Century Media Records, released in 2014 does not include Re-Cycles.
