This demo sold out in a few months. It was later remixed and partially re-recorded and released as 'Vên EP' in 2004.

All songs on this demo are slightly different from the EP versions. The EP has a clearer sound, some small vocal differences and more audible fiddle and folk instruments during parts with guitar.

Between "Ôrô" and "Lament" there's a short instrumental bridge that connects the two songs. On the "Vên" EP, this instrumental is the intro to "Lament". That's why this song is 04:10 on the EP instead of 03:34 on the demo. On the demo however, the same instrumental serves as outro to "Ôro", hence that one is 02:50 on the demo and just 02:16 on the EP.

The song "Druid" is also longer on the EP, because the version on the demo fades out a lot quicker at the end.

The EP-version of the song "D'Vêritû Agâge D'Bitu" has a different 'narrator' voice from the demo version of the song.

Recording information:

Recorded at Ballhorn Studios, Kyburg during May/June 2003.
