"Coal" entered the national sales charts in Norway on position # 65 upon release and was also voted "album of the month" by the magazines Aardschok (The Netherlands), Scream (Norway) and Rock Hard (France).

The album's cover artwork was once again provided by American artist Jeff Jordan, who already painted for the previous LEPROUS album "Bilateral" and bands like The Mars Volta.
