Damage Done is the eighth full-length studio album by the Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity. Here, the band returns to a more classic style while holding the new changes made in their albums Haven and Projector, especially in the keyboards, but this is the first record since "Projector" that does not feature clean vocals. Martin Henriksson started doing some "lead guitar riffs" on the record, so the band showed influences from The Gallery in the duality of lead guitars. Mikael Stanne said that the lyrics on this album are about the frailty of life.

A video was recorded for the song "Monochromatic Stains". It was done in a monochromatic format and bears visual and thematic resemblance to the film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The video was made by Achilleas Gatsopoulos. The Agonist have a Cover version of the song, released on the Century Media: Covering 20 Years of Extremes.

Several versions of the album feature a bonus track entitled "I, Deception" as well as the "Monochromatic Stains" video clip but it is known that the limited edition digipak contains them.The Japanese version of the album features the bonus track, "The Poison Well". The vinyl release includes "I, Deception" and also has different cover art. The 2009 reissue includes bonus tracks and digitally remastered audio.
