5 stars From Norway, the band has released his 4th album all of them received good reviews. What strikes us right away is the whispering voice that set the tone for the album just like when you want to create a monster talking in a movie. You know that he has a big voice, but you don't want to scare away the children. So the first part of the album as a cinematic atmosphere that reminds me of the project of Black Codex. It's interesting to hear the clear female voice and chanting melodies contrasting with that special male voice. There's a lot of instrumentation like saxophone, xylophone, cello, etc. that gives a lot of sophistication to the music. There is some addictive chorus throughout and beautiful keyboards melodies. If the general mood could be haunting, the second part of the album brings some light pop melodies. Don't look for some guitar solos here, every instrument is like a little orchestra in support of the melody. In conclusion, I didn't get bored a minute on this album.
