Till Makabert Vasen, well encapsulates the mood/progressive nature of Dodsvisioner (Bergraven's previous full-length) and takes it one step further. This time with a more diverse range of vocal treatments and a masterful approach to overall song structure. On Till Makabert Vasen, Par perfected his already unique rendering of Nordic chants and vehement growls. Though, the real genius is in Par Gustafsson's ability to give you just enough room to breath before elegantly knocking the wind right out of you... Only someone like Par, someone wholly proficient in all the necessary instruments, could do so in such a way that you know you can't be mad at the guy after the fact. I "heart" Bergraven and if you possess anything in the way of good taste so will you...
