Alvarin was about to give up this musical project because, right after "Ad Caelestis Res" was released, he suddenly realized he was left by his own. Obviously, after many hesitations and quests, Hennex (the new nickname for stage) found and contacted Vulpes, Dolgar, Winter and Lonafell so that the new material actually came to be recorded. I have no idea why they struggled so hard to release these new tracks since there is nothing remarkable of what they do and neither has the touch of originality. It is about just a quality execution, melodic parts, brutal vocals (in old GEHENNA manner), modern synth, guitar knotty intercessions and an ingenious battery...a kind of atmospheric Norwegian Black Metal with a great technique. Briefly, this is a decent album, well interpreted but in lack of inventiveness, pleasing for the ear but no more than 2-3 times. For those who still hadn't enough of Black Metal clones or simply want to listen to the same music under different titles, "Hybernation" might be quite a choice! I find it pathetic; it could be modicum for the curious ones and great for the fans!
