Henrik N. Björkk - Vitagen
Industrial, Noise Mr. Nordvargr Björkk is not the man who stands still and does nothing. He's back with a new album where he shows his skills. The music is created by carefully recorded sounds from reality and dark ambient music to match them. Nordvargr Björkk has always been good at building up soundscapes and creates an atmosphere that's hard to recreate.

The music is delivered in an elegant digipack made to look like old photos and that suits the music in some way, like it's telling a tale about the pictures. And as elegant as the digipack is the music, but that's maybe not so strange when thinking of what other forms we know this artist; Mz.412, Folkstorm and Toroidh. And for the curious we don't forget his collaboration with Masami Akita, more known as Merzbow.

The whole package feels obvious both in the stereo as in the record collection. I cannot do anything else but give this record 10 out of 10. I love this and you do it to. You have maybe not yet realized it.
