Oystein Ramsfjord would be a great name for a Norwegian death metal guitarist. But this Ramsfjord has opted for electronic keyboards and opulent music in the guise of Amethystium. Like his fanciful stage name, derived from the gem Amethyst, Ramsfjord's music is full of fantasy imagery. Titles such as "Arcus," "Shadowlands" and "Satori" give you a glimpse into a music where pristine sounds and descending-from-the-heavens synthesizers charge heroic melodies coasting atop an array of propulsive, almost danceable rhythm loops. Each successive Amethystium CD has gotten a bit less edgy, sweeter in their melodies and plusher in their arrangements, and while he doesn't step over the line into electro-Muzak, he comes close. In the past, his music has been likened to an imaginary soundtrack for The Lord of Rings, but Evermind is more pastoral elfin kingdoms and peaceful shires than storming orcs and demonic wizards. A little bit of that edge, a bit of depth beyond the pretty sounds, might make Evermind more profound than just pleasant listening. --John Diliberto

I love all of the amethystium CD's with a passion. No music i have ever heard has been able to top that of Oystein Ramfjord. His ability to mix sounds into a whirling musical stream of melody is a wonder to behold.

I was a bit surprised at my first listen to this CD. Unlike the other 2 releases, this one is slower, and seems to be deeper- looking within almost. Unlike the inviting ride of "Opaque" or the transcendent melody of "Shadow to Light", these songs seem light on the keyboard and heavy on the atmospheres. However, within this seemingly different style, there also exists a mystical quality, a more subtle side, that seems to give this album great meaning.

I believe the best track on here is "imaginatio". The wailing electric guitar seems to shake with raw energy, while the melody and atmosphere carry the listener far away. I can think of no better way than this song to end 3 CD's of musical genius.

I can't suggest this album as a first buy for amethystium. However, this CD is essential to the series. And I hope that Ramfjord continues to produce music in the future.

Oh, Wow!

This is a cd that will be liked by all who enjoy Enigma, Mehdi, Adiemus, Delerium, Mythos or even Robert Miles. It is the very essence of good electronic new age. So tranquil, yet so spirited (and interesting coverart!), this cd is a refreshing break from my well-worn collection, I just keep wanting to listen to it over and over again. I am amazed!

It reminds me somewhat of Enigma, but still very unique. This is music to the soul. Absolutely relaxing, as well.

I love amethystium's music. Each cd he has released has suprised me by being better than the last. I have no fear in setting my expectations higher for each release for he never fails to exceed them. Evermind is no exception, it is a beautiful etheral soundscape of transient waves and voices. Oystein Ramjford (amethystium) is a very talented master of mixing and sound. Fans of Animus Mundi will be pleased to hear their vocals on this cd as well as other guest appearences. I had lost interest in new age/world type music but Amethystium brought me back to the fold. My only problem is I can't find anyone else as good. I keep coming back to Ramjford's music over and over again. I bought the first Amethystium cd on a whim and it turned out to be one of the best music purchases in years. You will not regret your decision to give this a try. If you are a fan of this type of music you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

The Norwegian musician outdoes himself once again! "Evermind" is another artistic leap forward from his previous two albums in one major way. Where as the former two often copied drum loops from other peoples songs, "Evermind" limits doing this and as a result the album overall is a lot more original in sound.

"Arcus" begins with a crackling sound effect and becomes a beautiful, heavenly track with a beautiful blend of mid-tempo beats and beautiful female vocal effects. In a sense, this reminds me of Paul Scharz's "State of Grace" song.

Like a fane aged wine, it takes time to appreciate this exquisite album. I will admit that it took at least four listens of it to rattle my soul but rattle it did and I am glad I let the intimacy of this music into my conscience and soul.

Amethystium is an artist that throws a seed of desire into the listener, it slowly grows and lingers forever as the audience carries the faint memory of how lovely the music was and it keeps rekindling the need to listen to it as often as possible. This is a highly addictive artist and I can almost guarantee some sort of an obsession to form with anyone who enjoys this type of music. Similar artists include Yanni, Govi, David Arkenstone, David Lanz, Enigma and Delerium just to name some. The music is a mix of electronic pop, new age, some sparking piano and chant like melodies mixed in with angelic voices. It's the perfect thing to put on at night or when one wants to chill out and let the sounds take them away into far away galaxies of pleasure.

My favorite piece on this disc is Shadowloands - the deep, rich, embalming sound is almost hypnotic tune that always catches me under it's spell.

Evermind is a great CD. It did not instantly grow on me as did the other 2 and maybe that is why I appreciate it more. It seems darker but still dreamy and soothing. Amethystium in my mind is the best new age artist out there and all 3 albums rank among my top favorites with Enigma's first CD, Digital Moodz "Metamorphosis" and my latest favorite Achillea "Nine Worlds".

All in all I recommend any album by Amethystium. Each has its own personality which leaves the listener satisfied and wanting more.

I have their album before this one called Aphelion. I really liked that one and think that this one is just as good. Lovers of New Age music should definitely check out Amethystium. And if you have all of Amethystium's titles already or want something different, check out 2002 and Mythos. They should keep you happy and entertained. They may even put you in a meditative state. Enjoy!
