5 stars Prepare for the most unique listening experience since the discovery of "highlander psychedelic ambient blues folk rock"!

This is the perfect example of a band pushing the boundaries of music through the unthinkable mixture of different styles, creating very exceptional and highly enjoyable soundscapes.

This extraordinary creation takes you on an emotional ride through lush ambience, dramatical climaxes and bittersweet melancholy.

With old middle-european legends as theme and the spare but extremely efficient use of the Uilleann pipes you litteraly feel like standing in the foggy highlands, wet grass under your feet - listening to a mothers sorrow or witnessing a raid of a little village in this dark and mystical times.

The only drop of bitterness (in terms of album-quality) is that i feel the second half of the disc to be just a little weaker then the first - as if it was meant to close less emotional, the most memorable moments for me are found in the earlier stages. but still:

For itīs uniqueness and originality, the lovely soothing voice of Dam Kat, the great guitar soli and the awesome use of Uillean pipes - what a powerful instrument! - iīll give this debut 4.5 / 5 foggy tears of hope!
