"Hypnosis" is the eight full length album by the long established and widely acclaimed swedish dark ambient artist Johan Levin. This new opus is a massive 2CD release! A truly dark orchestration of the subconscious levels of the human psyche as it reveals itself through our dreams. As one could expect from Johan Levin’s undeniable craftsmanship, this is an engrossing and carefully crafted work. It’s major focus and intent was to convey the intricate details and strong emotions of dreams and nightmares that were submitted by friends and fans, as well as those of Johan himself. With a strong narrative and a distinct progression from surreal melancholy to feverish fear this album is an intense odyssey through the ever fascinating subconscious mind.

This is the first in a series of collaborations between artists on the Cryo Chamber dark ambient label on the theme of the Lovecraftian Elder Gods. As you would expect if you've read your Lovecraft and listened to dark ambient material before, it's intensely atmospheric and ominous, with a pervasive sense of cosmic dread and impending doom. The slow buildup as the eponymous deity slowly stirs from his long slumber is extremely effective. I'll definitely be checking out others in the series. Reuben Sammitch
