Another news piece from The End Recods website:

GREEN CARNATION release 'Acoustic Verses' today Jan. 24th, 2006 PDF Print E-mail
Norway’s prog metal masters Green Carnation – who has received critical acclaim worldwide for their back catalog of work, most notably the epic one-track opus Light of Day, Day of Darkness– return to the music scene today on a much softer note with ‘Acoustic Verses’ (via The End Records in North America)

‘Acoustic Verses’ finds the sextet successfully maneuvering through acoustic realms, peppered with passionate guitar riffs and eloquent melodies. It’s a distant step from their prog metal/hard rock ways of previous material, but in many ways, it’s what you’d expect from a band like Green Carnation. Never one to stand still.

So yes Green Carnation have changed things up again, and yes this might send some previous listeners askew, but for the real die-hard fans of the band they’ll come to understand that with the amount of work that went into the production, lyrics and music of ‘Acoustic Verses’ that the music here is just as potent and expressive as any of the heavier material they have released.

Haven't heard it for a while, but made me want to get light of day day of darkness when it was released, so couldn't have been too bad.
