Definitely some good song-writing to be had, but he seriously needs some more live instrumentation or at least half-way decent samples. This stuff sounds like it come out of a cheap Casio keyboard's sound set.
@Baalslayer: This the third chapter of the trilogy. It's a choise about less black metal and more melodic lines in this album Of Beauty And Sadness. With the next album he'll be back with new dark atmospheres and more black metal
The new album is amazing, but a wish he'd focus a little bit more on the black metal side of things like he did on "As a Sin", instead of all the instrumental/ambient stuff. Don't get me wrong, those tracks are amazing too, but I was a little dissapointed that he only used his amazing rasps on only 4 of the 11 tracks :/
