This is one of the most beautiful albums I've listened to in a million years. Period.

Behind the moniker Weh stands one Erik Evju, a Norwegian who certainly has the sombre darkness of northern shores in his heart and has the talent to express it too.

With one exception, namely the song The Unborn, a slightly happy, singer-songwriter inspired and in this cellection sligthly inappropriate tune,  the eight songs of 'En Natt Kom Doed' (Death Came One Night if I get the Norwegian title right) carry a lot of drama, yet at the same time a strong sensibility and deep sadness in them, and all of this brilliantly conveyed mainly by Erik's voice and an acoustic guitar. Synths, mandolin and other instrumentation is also used, and, I might add, cleverly so.

This has very little to do with heavy metal, but, dammit, it's wonderful music for those of us with a penchant for dark, sentimental music with a bit of nerve.
