Reviews:
"We're going on a strange trip to outer space. We will visit regions unexplored and times long forgotten... In short I guess it's save to say that the music on 'Stella Polaris' can be compared to a blend of Tiamat, Jethro Tull, Ozric Tentacles, Hawkwind and (old) Iron Maiden. I know that sounds like a bizarre combination but bear with me, it really works. This is dark, psychedelic old school hard rock, influenced by the works H.P. Lovecraft. Horror-rock might be another decent description... there you have it, quite a long review for a surprising album, filled with different influences. If you're into dark rock, you really should check this out. It might need some time to grow, for me it did, but in the end this is an excellent album that will probably find my media-machine a lot of times in the near future." (Merchants of Air)
