Exclusive bonus track: To conclude this tape we have included "Winter II". This piece was recorded at the same time and place as the original Barren Land but not included on the original CD.

Barren Land is a masterpiece of nature inspired and sampled ambience. Recorded on the Artic island of Spitsbergen and completed in early 2003, this is the official cassette edition. Colour booklet and factory made tapes.
Over an hour, NORTHAUNT craft an epic, frozen, beautiful atmosphere into which you escape and will want to return many times.
