Originally, the actual record was the pyre version, very raw, noisy and I liked that you could discover the melodies once you get over the low-fi sound and decide to listen instead of turning it off. However, the next day I recorded the guitars again with a different sound as I liked the idea of having two different approaches to one record and then I preferred some songs with a more distinguished sound, so instead of deciding for one I thought there should be one raw BM and one less low-fi BM recording of the same EP. The actual difference is the re-recording of the guitars and mixing the rest differently. Conceptually, the raw version is kind of reflecting the fire cracking of the pyre while people burnt to death – rough, hurting, painful. The ordeal version is more “merciful” to the listener.
