Technically this album should not be featured on this page because this is a dark ambient / dark wave album. So why is it featured then? Well, that is because this is a solo project of Kim Larsen who used to be the creative genius behind Saturnus (now The Loveless).

While this album has nothing to do with metal I would still like to compare it to Kim's old band. Because a good way to describe this album would be by comparing it to the dark ambient track, 'Consecration', of the Saturnus Mcd 'For the Loveless Lonely Nights'. The music on this album however is of a much higher quality. The music is more focused and has "body". Additional musicians helping out on instruments like Violin and Cello make this an interesting and gloomy album.

While there are better dark ambient and dark wave bands this album does deserve a place in your CD-rack. Especially Saturnus fans might like this one.
