    So this is basically "Let's take Trollskogen off of Vargnatt and make an album out of this". I like it a lot.

    This album deserves to be bought for its cover alone. I could stare at it for days...

    The atmosphere feels like a story i bought this and walked around with it in my ears while walking through a local park.... it gave me sense of being in diffrent places being in a forrest somewhere farm from civilisation... the amazing violins gave me such a wonderfull nature filled feeling... it was a state of mind where i wanted to be.... and never leave again shamefully the album was over and it was the last by empyrium.... this album is pure emotion, atmosphere feeling and greatness... the fact that this can be made gave me confidense to someday make my own music.... though i doubt it will ever compare.... Empyrium you are not a normal band :)

    It amazes me on every listen, how perfect this album is. Every track is a journey in an atmospheric and mysterious world where the music leads your path into high exciting thrills in the back off your neck. Bloody fantastic =D

    Got this randomly in Corfu of all places for 5 euro...and my god it's a magnificent, spellbinding, atmospheric and spine tingling album - beautiful, beautiful, stuff - my only grudge is it's in german so i dunno what the hells going on, but then why should all music be in english? especially if it's folk music, or in this case neofolk.

    This could very well be the greatest album in existence.
