Ratings and Reviews
I think this is one artist/srtists who don't get the credit they deserve. I am a massage therapist and I love this cd to death. It's simple, relaxing and yet magical without being cheesy. When I first bought it I had no idea it would become one of my most played CD's right alongside Enigma and Delerium.
Still my favorite
I have been a new age fan since high school. When I first heard this album, I knew it was something special. It is still to this day, my favorite album of any genre of all time. I totally get lost in these songs as they take me to a place no other album can. This was the first Amethystium album I heard and by far the best. A must have, you'll never regret it
The Best Amethystium Album Ever!!!
This album has a dark sound which is simply haunting—in a good way!!! All of the songs have a unique sound but mesh together beautifully. This album is also exciting and invigorating.
An ambient new age/electronica project of Norwegian producer/composer Øystein Ramfjord with world music influences, Amethystium arrived on the scene in 2000 with the self-released EP Autumn Interlude. After signing with Neurodisc Records, he released three albums in four years that all hit the Top 10 of the Billboard New Age Albums chart: 2001's Odonata (its "Odyssey" was later featured in the 2004 IMAX film Sacred Planet), 2003's Aphelion, and 2004's Evermind. The latter featured vocals by Lee Nisbet of Animus Mundi on three tracks. The compilation Emblem (Selected Pieces) was issued in 2006, and Isabliss arrived in 2008. Splitting with Neurodisc, Amethystium's 2012 EP Aurorae was released on Ramfjord's own AM.mu Records. Featuring the Harding fiddle, a traditional Norwegian instrument, the wistful Transience followed in 2014. ~ Marcy Donelson
