"Structures and Downfall" is a cup, filled to the brim with bittersweet emotions. Melodic and moody, sometimes dark but always a pleasure to listen. Peter Bjärgö is taking you on a trip through a imagined winterworld, calmly covered with a soft layer of snow.....
Favorite track: Inner Cathedral.
After putting ARCANA to rest in the past year, Peter Bjärgö has now channelled his creative energy towards his solo works. On what is now his 4th full length solo album, we are granted a calm, thoughtful and at times somber aural voyage. Melodic atmospheric guitar work, lush string arrangements and slow, heavy percussive rhythms are present and elevated to new heights. Written and recorded while beholding a wintry landscape in his newly built studio ”Asham Room”, he’s created a perfect balance of complex structures through his distinctive sorrowful, yet hopeful songwriting.

I often drive at night, and this album makes me feel like I'm on my way to the latest crime scene. Some psycho killer is on the loose, and I'm losing sleep over trying to catch him. I need this case solved! A fantastic album! Travis "Jukebox" Wickline

I slept on this album for far too long! After finally downloading it, I quickly realized what a beast of a recording it is. The album cover perfectly sets the scene for this Eastern infused dark ambient recording, which is becoming one of my favorite Cryo Chamber collaboration releases! I highly recommend this one!!

The shadows of the old city creep upon you as you delve deeper and deeper into its depths. What horrors to see, what marvels to behold? Codex grasps your throat and pulls you further down into this twisted travesty of reality. At no point it looses tension, keeping you on your toes with sounds from another dimension. Is this real? Or is it the sick dream of an ancient god? Whatever it is, an ambient highlight it is for sure, a powerful statement and a new benchmark for the genre. Rindenberg
