It's not your fault if you listen to Griseus and mysterious images haunt you through the album. It's the attitude of this masterwork, you can just listen and totally get lost in it. Just lean back, play the music and let this be your marvelous journey to mystery and nature. You will be surprised how delightful it will be.

I am currently in a round of doing reviews on first time listens. Everything that comes to hand from random searches. Right now, I'm so glad that this is the first piece of my experiment. Due to this I won't give any rating, you better try it for yourself.

Imagine your non-kvlt epic black metal band doing top notch music. Give it some more touch. And even more.

Nice atmosphere, well worked album, but I believe it is overrated by the aspect of not representing as first or unique the genres used.

The fact that it's a solo project makes it even more impressive.

Overrated?


Yep. Including by myself, initially. I still think it's a pretty darn good album, but listening to it all the way through becomes a chore due to its length (a flaw that so many one-man atmoblack projects' albums seem to have) and like Troy said some time ago, the classical elements are something of a nuisance, because the heavier parts are so much better.
