4 stars This CD is quite different from the band's debut CD "Tears Laid in Earth". Not only is previous singer Kari Rueslatten gone, so have most of the metal influences in favour of ambient soundscapes, world music and prog rock influences. The atmosphere of the CD is close to what other Scandinavian bands like Landberk and White Willow are doing, but even more eclectic and experimental.

The new singer is Ann-Mari Edvardsen who has a voice similar to Kari', high, clear, maybe slightly harsher but also more versatile: she can go from an operatic style to Lisa Gerard like wailings and everything in between. Another difference is the increased use of synthesizers (there's even piano, Mellotron, Arp and church organ on some of the songs) that provide ambient soundscapes on a number of songs.
