'this crying age' is an archetype of the dark ambient genre, conceived long before the term was used as a marketing tool. it moves slowly in four tracks that run for almost an hour combined and emanates an icy atmosphere, decidedly scandinavian, like endless forests in winter. the ticking of the clock opens the album like a merciless memento mori before the listener plunges into bleak atmospheres and threatening drones. underneath you can hear the lament of the damned, like in a medieval fantasy of purgatory, and the melody line in 'glaciers of scandinavia' does not proclaim salvation, but the eternal cycle of suffering. 'this crying age' convinces with its structured composition and surprisingly crisp production, real mood music.
