Additional info
The Suden Uni re-release was recorded in Tico Tico Studio in February 2000 and in December 2002. Mixed by Ahti Kortelainen. Mastered at Finnvox Studios by Mika Jussila. Produced by Moonsorrow

The album art shown is of the original 2001 release. The cover art of the 2003 remaster is quite different.
In spite of the final release date, most of the material was already composed in 1999. There are two different pressings of the album: the original edition of 1000 copies and the one after that. Between them the booklet layout was modified, but all audio material has been left untouched.

Re-released in December 2003 by Spikefarm Records as a remastered version. Includes new album cover and booklet, a bonus track (it's #8. on the CD and called "Tulkaapa Äijät!" (03:14)) and also a 40 minute bonus-DVD with two promo videos, "Sankarihauta" and "Jumalten Kaupunki", and Moonsorrow's gig at Tuska Festival 2003 with tracks "Jumalten Kaupunki", "Sankarihauta", "Kylän Päässä" and "Unohduksen Lapsi".

The album title means "A Wolf's Dream".

Song translations:
1. Son of the God of Thunder
2. On the Ice of Köyliönjärvi (Pagan Waters II)
3. Kuin Ikuinen (As Eternal)
4. Home of the Wind, Home of the Waves
5. Pagan Feast
6. 1065: Time
7. Wolf's Dream

Moonsorrow have established themselves as one of the premier Viking Metal acts along with Bathory, Einherjer , Ensiferum and Thyrfing, a while ago they surprised us with the excellent "Kivenkantaja", and now is time for these young heathens to Re-release their debut album, remastered and rewrapped with excellent cover art of Niklas Sundin, also they've included a bonus track and a 40 minute DVD, now that's what I call a Re-release!
