A new album!


I was excited to discover that Amethystium was finally coming out with a new album. All the songs are peculiar in the way that they evoke certain emotions while listening to them. I found this to be the case while listening to "Saudade" in particular. You won't be disappointed!



After 6 years since 2008's 'Isabliss' Amethystium is back with a new album and the wait was definitely worth it! There is definitely a new sound encompassing the whole record with lots of strings and real darkwave melancholic melodies and beats. Harkens back to Evermind in a few places for sure. Major standouts for me are Breathe Out, the Title Track and Mesmerized. Major winter, nighttime record. The title and artwork fit perfectly with the sound, a transition filled with uncertainty and melancholy. Highly recommend!



Another lovely album! I'm going to enjoy listening to this one as often as I listen to the others. :)

About Amethystium

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
