Review by Warthur
3 stars Husband and wife duo Ihsahn and Ihriel's Peccatum project will probably be a disappointment to those who are hankering for something resembling Emperor's work - although there are still metal influences in the mix on Lost In Reverie, there's nothing as direct and furious as Emperor at their darkest. Instead, the atmosphere aimed for is more reminiscent of somewhat melancholic post-rock.

5 stars I've been a huge fan of Ihsahn's work before the release of Lost in Reverie, mostly for EMPEROR (early PECCATUM albums are too weird to be called masterpieces). But after hearing this record I can say for sure: this guy is a pure genius. The first impression was a total shock: never in my li ... (read more)

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" ... (read more)
