Weh was created early 2002 by Erik E as an acoustic project, focusing on a dark and atmospheric feeling. In the summer the same year, five songs were recorded in "Grandma's Basement Studios", with Morgan Hennum Nicolaysen behind the knobs. The songs, resulting in a demo called "The Death EP", were performed using only a twelve-string guitar, a tambourine and a voice. This first demo received surprisingly positive reviews in norwegian and swedish magazines. The second demo, named "All The Sinners Are Sleeping Now" was recorded late 2003, on an eight-track harddisc recorder.
