"We simply had eleven great songs, and we thought that this material is too good to be 'just' bonus tracks," said Insomnium bassist and vocalist Niilo Sevänen. "They are part of the big story, so you can think of them as the director's cut material that tells a little extra. For those who want to have more."

"As the album would have been too long, we left these three tracks out on the initial version, yet they are part of the Anno 1696 story and complement it and some of the gaps are being filled," added Insomnium in a statement. "Songs Of The Dusk offers an alternative ending, so people can decide which kind of mood they prefer. This version is a bit more hopeful and less tragic, at least on a general Insomnium scale – everyone is dead…except the wolves."
