Jacob Theis Wish there were more bands with this kind of innovation, but then again, there aren't many musicians with the amount of devotion and patience that these guys have for a single album. Favorite track: Within the Womb of Creation.

Ronin This album is great in atmosphere and in sound. Cool songs but the album demands your attention otherwise it tend to slip away.

I prefer to lie on my bed in the dark when putting on this album. Favorite track: The Eternal Return.

M. P. With "Alpha" Vindensång created a highly atmospheric album, which sets you out into a deep and dense soundscape. Being all on your own, it takes a moment until you can find your way through it, but once you did, every step and every minute that passes feels right and the deep atmosphere just takes you away. So put your headphones on, close your eyes and listen to this. It's worth it. Favorite track: Within the Womb of Creation.

Spoonbräu Deep atmosphere with deep lyrics. This is the kind of band you listen to introspect yourself about the meaning of life and other meta-things. These guys take their time before releasing an album and that's how they can create that vibe. It has to be listened in a whole as the album is telling a story, so that's why there is no favorite track.

Niels Geybels It's hard to pick a favourite track on an album that is (once again) an amazing listening experience. Please take your time to explore one of the deepest records you'll ever hear. Favorite track: Into the Formless Void.

Fiffs Goddamn, this album is good. The production may be a bit off-putting at first but once you make it to the second track you realize just how fitting it is for the atmosphere that's being created, which is also perfectly represented by the artwork. Put on your headphones and get lost in this album. Favorite track: Within the Womb of Creation.

We are but the dust of stars, And unto dust we shall return The cosmic serpent devours its tail Seeking the source and Ripping apart the fabric of space and time Both bones and stars alike are crushed By the weight of gravity Into nothingness and oblivion Swallowed by the mouth of darkness Where all form will be destroyed, And all light will be consumed Pulling the heavens downward Into the yawning chasm That expands and envelops all things At the twilight of the universe We will return to the dust From which we have been created
2.
Empty blackness surrounds me And enwraps my body Suspended in starless darkness Without beginning or end The darkness pulls me under Into vast and immeasurable depths That swirl and churn like waves Descending downwards Through unknown waters That separate me from the surface In silence and nothingness I become the unformed The waters flow through me Bursting forth in streaming torrents That dissolve and wash away What remains of this form Vanishing like shadows in the night As I slip away into deepening darkness

A glow rises from the darkness Like the first light of dawn Breaking through the veil of night And bathes me in dim illumination That surges and pulses With the movement of distant brilliance Like the moth is drawn to the flame That erupts out of a sea of black I am drawn into the light And all of the darkness burns away I am consumed by the light And all of the darkness burns away
5.
Inside there is a fire that burns With the heat of a thousand stars Rising within me And setting the void ablaze From the flames Arises a flood of clear light That transforms me Into limitless burning radiance Like the stars, I am born from light Appearing out of nothing— The great emptiness that bears us all The quiet and fertile darkness Gives rise to the blinding light of day That lifts me upwards Becoming the pure vibrating energy Which flows through everything Becoming the pulse of life And as it runs through me The universe will be born again
