The album starts with a very nice acoustic intro that slowly builds a very nice
atmosphere. After hearing it, I was really looking forward to what the rest of the
album will sound like. Sadly the second song "Zwischenwelten" didn't really give me
anything, there is a nice acoustic part in the song but overall it's nothing really

But now, looking back when I first heard this album the song title "Zwischenwelten" can
really be seen as the border of two worlds the one that existed until this song and the other
that You'll about to discover. Without exaggeration I can say that the level of musicality and
emotion explodes in the rest of the album.

The songs just get me more sucked into it and get my imagination going. In my opinion
the strongest part of this album are the acoustic passages for example "Hauch" is a acoustic
piece with a main melody but the adding of a background guitar makes it such a melancholic
and nostalgia filled experience. I can say that "Hauch" and "Ode an verlorene Seelen" are my favorites.

I'd say that these two songs really could represent what this album is all about; the beauty of folk inspired
music and pure uncompromised emotion mixed with the atmosphere of melodic black metal. I saw this album being compared with artists like "Agalloch", "Wolves in the throne room" & "Fen" but I'd also add newer "Shining" and even "Minas Morgul" at some points.

So, to make a long story short. I love this album and I honestly believe that everyone who likes
black metal will find at least one song on this album that he'll/she'll enjoy.
