a turning point in extravagant underground wizard's career: era II starts with a departure from previous mysterious dark ambient canons, at the vanguard of synth nü-goth, or darkwave front, with a presence of harsher electronics, heavier rock and even drum'n'bass smartly intertwined together to spice the progressive mix up - pounding atmospheric melodies and industrial mechanics bring to mind Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy; highly infectious and magnificently outstanding album also features Sarah Jezebel Deva on soprano vocals
