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.

Mario Polzin 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.
Spoon

Spoon 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.

Fiffer 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.

Track Name: The Eternal Return
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
Track Name: Into the Formless Void
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
Track Name: Lights of the Abyss
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
Track Name: Within the Womb of Creation
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
