Nearly ten year after its first release, this is a CD reissue of Garmarna's Väsen-inspired debut EP. The disc appends to the original EP, the group's six-song demo. This is also the introduction of vocalist Emma Härdelin, who sang two songs for the EP before joining the group. There is a natural darkness to this Nordic folk music of ancient songs and instruments. Adding warmth is the bright fiddle melodies, Jew's harp, and Härdelin's voice.
