I believe this very project is one of the oldest in Italy in Dark Wave/Industrial field. If "Winter" or "Odisseum" were not enough advertised, "Waiting Forever" received a warm welcome on the Ambient market so that RUNES ORDER became an emblematical name for the entire Italian scene. The new tracks were composed in the light of impressions Claudio Dondo and Tony Tears (HELDEN RUNE) experienced after watching "The House With Windows that Laugh" motion picture and the complete album is inspired from the movie's sequences. If, on the previous album Diego Merzelletto/FROZEN AUTUMN performed the voice, for this one, the two musicians asked for Argento's apocalyptical voice/ ANTROPOFAGUS/SPITE EXTREME WING and from time to time... there can be also distinguished few echoes of female voice. As for the rest...industrial solos in CMI style, waves and effects specific to horror movies' atmosphere (Goblin, Frizzi, Simonetti)...shadows, darkness...a real Dark Ambient Industrial chaos... It is recommended solely to those who prefer sophisticated Ambient with cosmic elements (K.SHULZE). I guess it is even more terrifying and depressing than "Waiting Forever", appreciation completely validated and outlined by the album's title itself!
