Album Notes
1. C’est ici L’Empire de la Mort
This is the Empire of the Dead...
The Catacombs of Paris are a famous underground ossuary in Paris, France. The official name for the catacombs is l'Ossuaire Municipal. This cemetery covers a portion of Paris' former mines near the Left Bank's Place Denfert-Rochereau, in a location that was just outside the city gates before Paris expanded in 1860. The remains of over two million souls slumber here. (Wikipedia)

2. Cimetière des Innocents
The Saints Innocents Cemetery is named as a memorial to the story of the Biblical Massacre of the Innocents. Used from the 12th to 18th centuries, usually as a mass grave, it became overcrowded and all of the bodies were exhumed and transported to Catacombs. (Wikipedia)

3. La Crypte du piédestal de la Lampe Sépulcrale
The Crypt of the pedestal of the Sepulchral Lamp
The pedestal of the sepulchral lamp owed its origin to the necessity of obtaining a more free circulation of air in the catacombs. This induced the workmen to place a large vessel with fire on a block of stone; and the appearance of this suggested the idea of substituting a sepulchral lamp in its place. The lamp is in the form of an antique cup, and was the first monument erected in the catacombs.
