4 stars I swear that this album is very difficult for me to digest. Nope, it's not that the music is too complex, not at all; even though there are some segments with complex arrangements. I even don't understand why it's so difficult for me to digest this album. Their "Aurum Nostrum" album is more accessible to my ears. With this album I even admire Sinkadus because the are more mature than its preceding album.

What can I say about this album? First of all, the music is really dark from start to end - so do not expect something with uplifting mood or so. The strong point of this album is its neatness of composition, unique time signatures with most of the tracks are performed in mellow style. Of course, you will find some segments with medium tempo but that is part of the whole arrangement of music. Second, if you love the oldies prog instrument which some people refer as an instrument that characterized prog music in the past: mellotron, you will definitely enjoy this album Yes, this album contains chock full of soaring mellotron sounds. What makes it even better is that the mellotron-based music is strengthened with flute and cello works. What a great combination of musical instruments.

An excellent album that I recommend for fans of Anglagard, King Crimson, Genesis or After Crying to own this CD. Even though this CD is hard for me to digest, I still often play it on my player. It's probably I like the combined sounds of mellotron with acoustic like cello and flute; also the non-English singing. And also the sonic quality is very good even though not excellent. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
