3 stars Although I was never a fan of black metal, I was attracted to this CD by its beautiful cover, the intelligent theme and the good reviews. It is quite a surprising album: very interesting mix of black metal, symphonic rock and swedish folk. The vocals are varied and Andreas Hedlung has a great voice, which varies along the CD, going from black metal growls to clean folk in such a natural way you really wonder if it is the same guy singing them all. I usually hate those grunts, but in this CD they are few and even then they donīt sound forced. Intelligent lyrics also helps a lot and this guy is very insightful. Cosmic Genesis is a great landscape of sounds and moods, everything falling into place at the right moment. Even the dreadful eletronic drums are bearable here.

So, if youīre looking for something different, something new, energetic, melodic and with clever lyrics, try this CD. They even manage a interesting cover of the classic Uriah Heepīs song Rainbow Demon that do justice to the original version. Not your average prog metal band, but very good and original indeed! 3,5 stars.
