Coph Nia - Shape Shifter
Dark Ambient, Electro Atmospheric albums are some what nice, if it is in the shape of soundtracks mostly, otherwise it tends to feel quite tedious and dull when artists do an entire album of this, even if Aldenon Satoriol's voice is enormously fitting for this kind of music and plays across the strings inside you.

The choirs and heavier drumbeats contributes to an gloomy atmosphere, but without anything happening other then that, it's easy to suddenly find yourself yawning.

The cover versions of Leather Nun's "Prime mover" and Bauhaus "Stigmata martyr" are interesting and unusual, but the album is perhaps most fitting as background music for reading of Faust or similar.
