5 stars PECCATUM, the side project of Vegard Sverre Tveitan (Ihsahn) from the legendary Black Metal band EMPEROR, and his wife Ihriel, a project in which Ihsahn has (once again) pushed the envelope of metal as we know it. With a very Experimental approach and a dark whimsical flavor, "Lost in Reverie" was the perfect (no exageration) work we could expect from Ihsahn and Ihriel, and what's better, it has absolutely nothing to do with other bands around. Some parts remind me of Electro Freak KLAUS SCHULZE, and some melancholic depressive bands like RIVERSIDE, and NO-MAN. PECCATUM, as a band, we can consider it as an Avant-Metal band with reminiscences of Electronic, Darkwave, Experimental, and Psychedelic music. With a little help from Knut Aelfjær (reknown jazz drummer), the strange intrincacy of PECCATUM, and the crazy minds of the frontman and woman, make "Lost In Reverie" a masterwork!

Highlights: The album as one, is a highlight in Metal...
