I just received this album in the mail today. I put it in my cd player and I was instantly amazed when I heard the first couple of notes of the first song. Pete Johansen’s amazing viollin playing skills add depth and sensuality to the album. Anita Auglend’s voice is beautiful and angelic. Although this album is softer and gentler than Perpetual Desolation, it’s still an excellent album. I recomend it to veterans of the goth metal scene as well as people who are just now being introduced to this beautiful, dark and sensual genre of music.
