The low level on the album is meant to get listeners to max their volume and let
the thunder in the end of "Skoghens Minnen Vækks" crack their speakers. "Et
Sorghetog" was originally recorded with low pitched vocals. That particular
version can be found on "The 11th Year Anniversary Album."

Photography by Fredrik Bäckar, under Shamaatae´s direction.
Logos, pencil drawings and hand writings by Shamaatae.
The wooden staff is hand made by Shamaatae, it took him two weeks with a
soldering iron to burn all the sigills, texts and pictures into the staff.

During the time this album was recorded, LP III "Kampen" and LP IV "Faunaz
Samgang" were completed.
"Øþegarðr" and "Oþer Trulhøyghda" are the parts two (Del II) and three (Del III)
in the manifesto of the secret village of Tribalerna.

Great music completely ruined by a shit production. I don't care about thunder when I'm listening to black metal ffs. If I wanted to listen to sounds of nature I'd go to some hippie decor store and listen to their playlist or just go outside.
Prettier than BloodTears.
