Genre: Gothic Metal
Playing time: 44:36

- The Watcher
I'd never have thought that a band/project consisting of members of ANCIENT WISDOM/BEWITCHED, VINTERSORG and NAGLFAR could possibly sound like HAVAYOTH...
Very calm and atmospheric are the nine compositions (among them two instrumental pieces), borne by atmospheric keyboards and calm guitars, plus Anders Hedlund's deep, clear vocals.
You can divide the album in two musical parts, on the one side tracks with electric guitar, which adds a nice slight heavy edge to the songs and on the other side the really calm and quiet songs. Among the entries in the former category you can count for example "Transcendence", "Mirrors" and the excellent "Teloah", while "The Watcher", "Burn" or "Fallen" see only little or no use of the guitar.
Fans of the mentioned bands should check out "His Creation Reversed" before buying it, all others, who also like it calm, should check it out, too.
