Review by Eetu Pellonpaa
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars The second full studio album of this band reaches even deeper sectors of "Dactalspace". Song lengths run often to circa eight minutes, and loose concept themes are built from repeating of melodic variations, consolidated with the integrity of themes and overall style. Also many songs are merged together building a continuous flow of music. The record has some neurotic scale progressions slightly reminding millennium's change-era King Crimson, and which are completed with devoted piety. Balanced by more straightforward beating, where interesting contrast tensions are created by merging both calm background scale pickings and direct rock assaults, technically clean rock sound and alive emotional presence of the singer. The lyrics, sounds aesthetics and cover art themes refer to dystopic sci-fi themes, delivering a pleasant roller coaster ride to the band's symbolist fantasy world. I liked the contrasts of calmer and heavier sequences used in several tracks, forming very well working songs waving pleasantly from one hair-raising moment to another. The title track starts with a tasteful cosmic ambient sequence, and the main rock composition has nice variations in the verses, which deepens the composition effectively. "Varjoeläimet" has quite critical rhythm arrangements and other distracting elements included, being the really chaotic tune of the album. "Metarktis" is a longer tune with long build-up's and deep doses of melancholia, leading to powerful overdose named "60° 53´N, 101° 53´E", where solitary self-developing contemplations are projected as colossal prophetic science fiction visions with very imaginative dreamy arrangements. From their three first albums I believe this is the band's most hysteric output, culminating the anxiety both musically and lyrically (the last song really tumbles with this potential).
