This album is the essence of reflections made by a person that has had too much time to think in his own solitude. A person that honors the past, dwells on it and lets it dissolve into the present. I know from reading about Erik Gärdefors, the mastermind behind this album, that he draws inspiration from the southern Swedish landscapes that he grew up in and from various Swedish poets, old movies, and Ingmar Bergman. With a clear vision he has transformed these sources of inspiration into 6 tracks of calm and focused black metal melancholy.
