This is a reissue of the debut Vond, retitled (from Slevmord) to reflect the new artwork. Vond is Mortiis under another name. The gloom, despair and sinister sounds are carried out in much the same way as the two Mortiis solo records. An even more understated and elongated melody line seems a weakness, to me. Much of the synthesizer sounds evoke classical instrumentation such as flute and strings. An excellent way to wind down after a particularly chaotic evil session of Dungeons and Dragons in the tunnels or from a sweaty exercise in self-loathing and mutilation. Take your pick.
