Reminds me of Mortiis, and perhaps Penitent only this one is more concrete and lyrical but nevertheless anachronic to this day. Come on! this type of music was made in the 90s by lots of other bands (two examples the previous aforementioned). To make an album enterely based on synths is just tasteless to this day. Especially beacause synths are for the most part instruments that serve as accompaniment for main instruments, perhaps machines for especial effects if one may say so.

The work would be a lot more interesting and memorable if the man would have included at least one real instrument into the flow of the music granting a more organic and lively feel to the sometimes extremely lyrical sets (absolutely melancholic though, something i dont appreciate much as it shows lack of vigour) but he adhered to make it resolutely synthesized at the exception of the chants and voice sets that have the best impact over the album, he already made this kind of music while in jail, there is at least three albums with this patented style, so it would really interesting to see Varg go on experimenting with this trademark sound of his by adding his patented non-electric guitar, non-black metal impromptu via more neofolk style, something still unheard to this day. That would be something. For the time being this will remain as remains from his past.

Perfect for those relaxing in Valhalla, washing themselves in Odin's bath house and listening to dead warriors reminiscing on past glory's.

The fact that (despite Kali Yuga's merciless war on him) Varg continues to create music so beautiful and serene speaks volumes about the man's character. Reaching the Center, he seems. This Doric music, not for the faint of heart.
