4 stars really did not expect anything when i stumbled upon this band, but what i stumbled on was something unexpected and fearly insane prog metal, which blends jazz and avantgarde with metal.

This album is the more mature brother of the debute album, more refined and added to the all a mellotron which gives the heavy, crazy music a vintage depth which only the mellotron can give.

the singing is in Norwegain, and can therefor be compared to Seigmen, but that is a missleading carcterestic, which the band themselvs would loudly say NO WE DON'T. but it is to lie to tell that the two bands share some similar traits, but more in that they sound like nobody else, Dodsverk sounds like nobody else as far as i know, this album sounds like nothing youve ever heard, bold statement is bold, this is a genious metal album, and in the Avant garde section this album would be a good investigation for those who like the strange in the metal world, the techicality of the musicians involved is staggering, the controll on isntruments are done by masters of ceveral genres not only metal, they go from metalcrushing riffs, to cabaret style music, to swing jazz in one hit on the snaredrum, but it is unmistakable avantgarde metal, an experiment with metal by taking in sounds from avant garde,

fans os maudlin of the Well, Mike Patton related music, Unexpect, Sleepytime Gorilla Museeum, Shining will cherish this album... also fans of the RiO scene will like this album, many would like this album, if they gave it a spin or 10.

recomended songs, Mer, Zoolist, Sr 2, Sr 3, 846 484 and Apati...
