AllMusic Review by

Well of Souls is the first "official" collaboration between Vidna Obmana (aka Dirk Serries) and Steve Roach. It is an amazing piece of art. Serries and Roach are on the same page all the time. There was no need to mix the sound worlds together. These two have shared a sound world for quite a while, going back to an unnamed and unknown time. The complex and intricate sound designs come from all angles. Serries and Roach are forging new territories and stretching the limits of known musical boundaries. This double-CD set has distinct references to Roach's desert ambience and to Serries' stark minimalism. The combined atmospheres have foreboding nuances and cold organic textures. The forged hybrid has all the qualities of electro-tribal ambience and then some. This is a must-have for all e-music fans. It is one of Serries' best efforts and one of the genre's strongest discs as well.
