Splendid collaborative work between Gustaf Hildebrand and Amanda Votta, Lacus Somniorum emerged as a mutual desire to convey a suggestive concept of what lies hidden and unseen by the eyes of modern civilization--beneath the waves in murky chasms, or perhaps in places not anchored within our concept of reality. Airy flutes and choirs hover above sometimes distant, rumbling sound textures, hinting of corroded machinery and unseen presences but also emphasizing a sense of serenity and peace of mind. The underlying concept is not fear of the unknown, but rather of a hidden beauty within those places where none of us will ever venture.

It's a dark journey through dim places that used to be inhabited by creatures from outer space or by some forgotten gods fallen into oblivion. You can see the light from times to times even in the darkest of places... Wasn't really into Ambient before but I feel that the whole album incorporate well into a death metal playlist it makes for a great hiatus between some more demanding materials. Th3G00D
