This CD re-issue contains 5 bonus tracks of demos recorded more-or-less live in the spring of 2006 at Anekdoten's studio Sisu Sound.

The demos for 'Prince Of The Ocean' and '30 Pieces' were previously released on the Kscope compilation 'Chapters'. Nicklas believes some of the demos outclass the studio versions.
