This is a re-release of 'Aspera Hiems Symfonia' (disc one), 'Constellations' (disc two) and My Angel (disc two). It also contains two previously un-released tracks on disc two.
The Aspera Hiems Symfonia (AHS) (disc one tracks 1-8) truly is excellent. It's re-recordings of the tracks on Constellations, plus 4 others. The "voices" have been enhanced, and the whole thing sounds pretty well produced. Garm performs very well, although his vocals aren't perfect, and definitely not as good as on Constellations (see next paragraph). I think that the best tracks are 'Wintry Grey', 'The Bodkin and the Quietus' and 'Du Nordavind'.
The Constellations part (disc two tracks 11-14) is possibly the best music I have ever heard. It's 10 times better than AHS. It sounds a lot more atmospheric, rawer, Garms vocals are WAY better, and Hellhammers drumming is next to perfect. Samoth also performs on this album, as does Steinar Sverd Johnsen, who creates the best keyboard melodies in the world, ever. It's so magical it's unbelievable!
My Angel (disc two tracks 15-16) is also a lot better then AHS. Again it has a lot of atmosphere, and the vocalist and bassist, Marius Vold, is fantastic. Steinar Sverd Johnsen and Hellhammer feature on it, too. Steinar Sverd Johnsen did keyboards and guitar on this EP. The track My Angel is my favourite. It's very spooky, and very weird. Morax is good, too. Again, very weird, and lovely keyboards.
I'm going to score this 98%. 2% deducted for AHS, which has some tiny vocal problems. I recommend that you buy this now!
