I am almost certain the "1992 Remix" does not point to the year it was made, but rather the year it's trying to sound like. There are simply too many nods to the era fitted into the two-something minutes.
The Polytron Remix is fine, but the Velcro vs. IVO Live cover takes the prize. A great piece of electro. A worthy cover.

The original release came out 1988 by Darklands Records in a 7” vinyl format, as a split EP with Advanced Art. It was a limited edition of 300 copies and sold out in a few months. Before this 7” version, Two Witches recorded another version in their rehearsal room September 1987.

This “demo version” is already released in a CD “Into The Darklands – The Early Years 1987-1989” by VUZ Records, Germany. This time it was a limited edition of 1000 copies. “Into The Darklands – The Early Years 1987-1989” came out 1996 and were also sold out quite fast.

In 2002 the guys of Imatran Voima (a Finnish electronic act) took contacts to Two Witches, asking if it is possible to release some of their remixes, together with the original version. Before that Imatran Voima already played a cover version of the song in some of their gigs. And finally, the 12” vinyl of “Pimeyden Jousi” came out at 2003.

Again the release is strictly limited as 300 copies, all hand-numbered and with a lyric sheet + hand-painted sleeves.
