Metallurgical Fire Overall a good ambient album. The Murmur seemed a bit out of place to me, because it preached a theme rather than allowing the listener to go on a personal journey. However, the music as a whole is both relaxing and unsettling, as an ambient album should be. It is also quite beautiful. I did not expect to make it through more than one track in a sitting (I take ambient in small doses) but the classical influences kept me going. Favorite track: Annie, Light in A Dying World.

The Final Sleep Instant purchase after hearing the preview tracks. I love this style of music. I can't wait to hear the rest. Great stuff.

Ambient / Neo-classical artist Melankolia presents their fourth full-length album ‘Vividarium Intervigilium Viator'. Founded by musician Mike O’Brien, (Appalachian Winter, Veiled Monk, Ritual in Ash) Melankolia has been releasing introspective and thoughtful music since the project’s beginnings nearly 10 years ago.

Mike O'Brien states:
"This album bridged nearly 5 years of hardship and resurrection in my life. Thematically, this album is a journey of OUROBOROS in my personal life; self-cannibalizing at one end, enigma of absolute perpetuality at the other. It wasn't the project that changed, but me. The music was always there, but I had to learn to extricate it from the ruins of a life that was no more. In this way, the album is a study of personal catharsis"

The nights are long, the air is cold, and winter's firm grasp is upon us. This is the season of contemplation and reflection. Vividarium Intervigilium Viator is the perfect soundtrack for solitary introspection and a recalibration of your mind, allowing you to feel mourning, loss, resentment, as well as hope for optimism. The physical album is presented in a 4 panel digipack with an accompanying booklet of photography from the composer Mike O’Brien and Silvana Massa.
