I must confess I was shocked! There was not a single moment in my life to come to the thought that these two talented musicians would come to express Dark art in an Ambient shape... especially since they had released some Dark Symphonic albums before that! Well, keeping some faded symphonic remains, ELEND comes into fans attention with 11 magnificent new tracks, full of mystery and meditation. Vocals are clear now and the sopranos excellently interweave while the synthetic sounds preserve a certain charm to this material. This is just a different ELEND, radically changed, a new ELEND who proves that music has millions faces... infinite ones, I'd say! As far as the execution is regarded... I have nothing but praising words! There is a major negative point: if you don't have the right mood, there are some "chances" for this album to be rather too monotonous with no colour... no shape!
