I'mnot a Nortt fan, and I'm quite happy this album doesn't sound like Nortt; I like its dark dungeon-like, vicious atmosphere, full of subtle touches, very reminiscent of Dictator. It's a 7 for me.

I also enjoyed this, though I find it too short. The last track is indeed an extended outro, though very good.

As for the comparison with Nortt, there are similarities - the vocals are pretty close most of the times, there are piano notes scattered here and there, as well prolonged keyboard lines running in parallel. The drums and guitars are used in a very different way though and the overall feeling the album gives is not quite the same. I'd compare it more to bands like Grívf, as the music has a similar sense of floating.

I agree with the reviewer that the first track stops way too abruptly though I'd also rate it a bit higher=)


p.s. "vicious atmosphere, full of subtle touches" is so spot on for Nortt, hehe=)
