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.-SkullFuck webzine
