From my point of view the best Hypnotic Dirge artist to date, netra, is back with the second album, a followup to their highly-acclaimed "Mélancolie urbaine" debut. This time we're treated with 70 minutes of its strange combination of Depressive (Post) Black Metal with Trip-Hop and Ambient, something only the ones of you deeply open-minded will dig. Although this time there are less memorable tracks, the ones presented on Sorbyen have their own power and identity, my fave track being the Bluesy "Emlazh" with its high-class guitar performance. At some points I felt the drums being too synthetic and not fit to the music atmosphere, but overall I apprecate very much how netra makes its listeners discover another dimention, but be careful enough not to let you loose in all the melancholy transpiring from this material.  

Rating: 9.5/10
