Book of Illusions: Chapter I

This 25-minute long demo, from which an excellent album can be made, has apparently been recorded within a reasonable budget.  Despite the fact that one person made it on a modest 4-track(tape) recorder, the miraculous atmosphere of experiemental ambient/doom has been beautifully conveyed.  Sometimes the album reminded me the music of their contrymen Agolloch; however, Book of Illusions is much more majestic and mysterious.  Imagine yourself on a quiet warm evening on a deserted ocean shore, and the music, which would emphasize your feeling at that moment, would be called VLE.

Rating: 5/5 stars
