Keep the CD going at the end, and you'll hear a hidden track for 4 minutes and 44 seconds of raucous, thrashing metal vamps and a wild solo by Berglund, where he engages his customary guitar pedals. This track demonstrates the "hybrid identity" of e.s.t., as do Svensson's own words in Stuart Nicholson's book Is Jazz Dead (Or Has It Moved To a New Address): "We want to hear stuff that bites us, we try to find that music. It's not a question that the only good music you can find is classical music or jazz, the problem is to find it and hear music and get inspired. I don't know how it works really, the creative filter or whatever, but it's fun."
