Limited first press in jewel-case. The more common version is the 1995 digipak.

Album cover is artwork from Theodor Kittelsen (1857-1914) called Fattigmannen (The Pauper).

Song titles in English are:
1. "What Once Was"
2. "If the Light Takes Us"
3. "Into the Castle from the Dream"
4. "Emptiness"

"Et hvitt lys over skogen" was originally intended to be the fourth track on this album, it was replaced with the song "Tomhet". Some early promo copies of this album (the På svarte troner tape version) included "Et hvitt lys over skogen" instead of "Tomhet". This unreleased track was later included in a "Various Artists" compilation by Misanthropy Records, called Presumed Guilty.

Recording information:

Recorded at Grieghallen Studio, September 1992.
