About this album

Seishinbyouin is the second album from Atrium Carceri, and drags the listener on a violent journey through haunted mental asylums, ripe with the cries of the lost and the damned. Rotting jailcells, past insanity and the crumbling domes of the other side are a few of the many eerily twisted images that this evocative music compels. There is a constant dark majesty that forcefully propels the message of inevitability: The colorful illusion people spend most of their lives in is fragile as a rose petal, and just as easily shattered in Seishinbyouin. With brilliant use of the full spectrum of dystopia, this will surely leave no one unscathed. The album is filled with dark ambient soundscapes, haunting symphonic intensities and engulfing atmospheres that let you get inside the twisted psyche of the total other. One can but wonder at the twisted mind of the tortured soul that made this vision spring to ghastly unlife.

    I wonder how many people picked up on the fact that The Call is actually a song about Ah My Goddess?

    After listening to this album, I really wonder whether or not I need to check out his next few albums (for fear of disappointment should they not be as good as this one).

    This album is the very epitome of an emotional roller-coaster ride...never have I been so incredibly absorbed in an album... A truly incredible work of art...

    The most emotionally-charged album. Dark Water is excellent.
