Format: CD (Album)

The music on this album sounds like background music for a documentary on medieval burial crypts. My mind also went to John Boorman's Excalibur a few times. There is some really fine and challenging music here and makes for good listening for 4 or 5 songs, but definitely not for 12. After 5 songs there isn't anything new and it sounds like a variation of what came before and the feel and mood is the same as well.

The problem to my ears lies with the title. The rhythmic quality and tension that runs throughout the album never changes or flows into anything else and gets boring after a while. It's like the core engine only has one gear, one speed, one direction. Piano and keys played in a percussive way on almost every song becomes annoying and adds to the sameness.

What I really enjoyed the most are some of the slower parts with the woodwinds and brass (oboe, flute, bassoon, trumpet). Very nice. Overall, some good creepy tension, but an album whose parts are better than the whole.
