- Xeroxed covers using a regular tape

Rehearsal session. All tracks are instrumental.

This demo was released in 1991, but the cover shown here (and on the official Burzum site) was released through Helvete (Euronymous' shop) sometime after the debut album was released, meaning sometime between June the 6th 1992 (the day the church on the cover picture was burned down - a photo from the same series was used as the Aske-cover) and January 1993 (when Helvete closed for good).

No one seems to know if the 1991 pressing of the demo had artwork at all, or if it just had a handwritten inlay.

Several sites and bootlegs list a fourth track, a hidden "Outro", which also appears on the highly dubious "Draugen: Rarities" compilation along with other tracks from this demo. This track is a fake, and does not appear on the original demo. It is simply a later album-track (Den´╗┐ Onde Kysten) presented in very poor and muddy sound-quality.
