Suden uni ("Wolf's Dream") is the first full-length album by Finnish pagan metal band Moonsorrow. It was originally released in 2001, and then re-released in 2003 with one bonus track (a Finnish lyrics version of the traditional Swedish song "Kom nu gubbar"), different cover art, and a 40-minute DVD. Ville Sorvali - vocals, bass, handclaps, choir. Marko Tarvonen - drums, timpani, 12-string, vocals (backing), handclaps, choir.
Their debut album, Suden Uni, recorded in early 2000, was released in early 2001, along with Tämä Ikuinen Talvi ("This Everlasting Winter"), a re-release of a 1999 demo. Suden Uni ("A Wolf's Dream") combined Finnish paganism and folk elements. After recruiting Mitja Harvilahti and Markus Eurén, Moonsorrow started playing live, releasing Voimasta Ja Kunniasta ("Of Strength and Honour") in late 2001. It was followed by their 2003 release, Kivenkantaja ("Stonebearer"), and Verisäkeet ("Blood Verses") in 2005 .

Suden uni translates to A Wolf’s Dream, and the album appropriately begins with a sample of a howling wolf. This is the first of many samples typical of the folk metal genre featured on the album, which also includes rushing winds, breaking waves, and a recording of a Viking battle sequence complete with the clash of swords and the shouts of warriors. While the use of these samples may seem cliché, the band surprisingly manages to use them in a rather tasteful manner

Impressive through and through, Suden Uni transcended the many sonic reference points named above to instantaneously establish Moonsorrow as champions of their chosen league, and it also proved an almost impossible act to follow.
