Interview by Sven Hauke Erichsen

If you like a mix of bands with Dead Can Dance, The Mission - Wayne Hussey, Shamall, Enya, Florence and the Machine, early Vangelis, Loreena Mc Kennitt, Fields of the Nephilim, Clannad, later Pink Floyd, RPWL, Tangerine Dream and many other smooth artists from the field of world music, guitar progressive goth/wave/neo folk with an 80/90s touch, this is exactly the right place and you should definitely risk an ear.

The fulltime record sounds absolutely professional to me, you just notice that "old experienced hands" of the business are at work here. My personal opinion after listening to it several times is that you really notice that Thorsten and his team have put a lot of heart and soul into the project and that in every form from A to Z. The mystical art rock tracks sound absolutely professional.

The mystical art rock tracks and spherical sounds and folky, rocky soundscapes, as well as the great voices come across very authentically, elegiac and emotional as well as creative and are just really fun. The themes of the tracks are also very exciting and interesting, generally a very successful release, the step to the greats of the genre is not far away or even already completed.
