Guest review by

Carl McCoy's obsession with magick (with a "k", to distinguish it from the kind magic David Copperfield performs) and myth is pretty obvious from the very opening track "Dead But Dreaming", which happens to be one of the greatest and most fitting intros I've heard on any album. It should give you a fairly good idea what to expect from the rest of Elizium: gloomy, mystical and spine-shivering gothic rock, utilizing mostly a minimalistic approach when it comes to the instrumentation, but creating rich soundscapes filled with quiet sorrow and otherworldly sensations.

Rating: 9 This album is extremely atmospheric-in the way that it haunts you with its overbearing melody and beautiful yet gloomy overtones, for hours after you've merely stopped listening to the album itself. Yes,its very memorable. To say i've only been a proper fan of the band for the last three months is strange, but this album really is something special. And McCoy's voice is hauntingly epic.

Rating: 8 I'm officially awarding this album with the title 'best 1-o'clock-in-the-morning-all-alone-what-are-you-doing-with-your-shitty-life album'. You know.
