Looking at the cover, which depicts a pile of skulls, one might think it is a low budget noise CD. However it goes much deeper than that.

It has a very dark ambient industrial spirit along with droning noises and a machinery kind of sound, not unlike the Eraserhead soundtrack. At one point there are some female screaming sounds in the background, and then toward the end some sort of chanting that really creates a creepy sort of industrial clamor.

At a little over 54 minutes long I will spin it while on my computer and let it go two or three times before I change it. I know it's been said before but this album would truly compliment a modern day horror movie.

Henrik N. Björkk is definitely for people looking to move beyond the more "mainstream" Dark Ambient. I will continue to do searches for this artist and feel totally confident in recommending this album to fans of (ultra) Dark Ambient.
