Reviews and comments

The rarefied atmospheres take the listener to a world where human coordinates are lost, in favour of a transfiguration towards purer and more ethereal forms of existence.

-Valerio, Crypta Nivis Webzine

The music is well played, well constructed and really sucks you into its depths.

-Solemn webzine

It consists of a beautiful arrangement of various synth sounds, creating a dark and depressing atmosphere, yet very beautiful.

Jääportit – Askeleet valottomuuteen 

Se mitä ei näe valossa
Erottuu yössä
Eräiden kosketuksena
Varjoissa tuntemattomina

Muistot tummasta unesta
Kehottavat olemaan
Yhtä kanssanne

Lopeta kylmyyden tuska
Veitsi vereen kasta

– Tuomas M. Mäkelä, 1998.
