Note: original version did not include bass.

The original release was sold out at 215 copies.
The reissue was taken offline after a number of downloads.

The demo was reissued in 2002 with different cover art. Also, the music on the reissue was remastered (in 2001) and modified. Bass was added, along with samples and some additional synth and vocal overdubs. The original version is used as a 'backing track' on the reissue. Track lenghts on the remastered edition are also slightly different:
1. Jo Pimeys Saa (02:01)
2. Fumbulvetr Frost (06:56)
3. Hvergelmir (07:51)
4. Elivagar (Pakanvedet) (02:33)

The original cover is shown on the right, the cover of the reissue is located on the left side.

This is the band's 1st officially released demo.

The track "Hvergelmir" was re-recorded in 2008 and used on the "Tulimyrsky" EP.

Both the original and the remastered version of this demo have tracks 3 and 4 attached to each other.

Recording information:

Recorded in Candle in May 1997.
Additional instruments recorded for the internet-release in Candle, June 2001. Reissue (re)mastered by Marko Tarvonen.
