Ulf Söderberg's "Vindarnas Hus" feels much more energetic than the latest Sephiroth release ("Draconian Poetry") which only really had two pulse raising songs (but I mean this not to discredit that release). Here, Söderberg feels much more in control of the balance of percussion, ambience and form. He uses voice sparsely, but this only increases its hair raising effect. There is a brilliant combination of darkness in the long brooding low tones and the higher enlightening synth.

Söderberg would be very comfortable with film scores--not only of the horror genre, but any film that traverses across the darker tendencies of the human condition, and Söderberg has an understanding of time and space and this shows in that the album hits the harder and lighter notes across the album's 52 minute span, perfectly, but not in such a way that we knew what was coming.

This is an album that is over before you know it--something that can be rare for anything of the dark ambient genre--an effortless sojourn, as good as anything that Peter Andersson has released under his own name or under his raison d'être moniker.

(Brian Williams (Lustmord), Andersson and Söderberg--not to mention one of the greatest acts of all time, Desiderii Marginis--should collaborate.)
