is no amateur in the world with its stellar music. Atmospheric
black metal entwined with a soft touch of ambiance and post rock
melodies. At times, I am reminded of the mighty Agalloch.
Progression, tempo changes, blast beats, atmosphere, dreamy pulsations
from the stars, and the touch of the misty and cold nature high up in
the lands. Beautiful melodies all around even in the more softer
moments of the acoustics and ambient tones. Ennoven sure know how to
mix the music well producing an outcome of awesomeness."

"A lot of Black Metal bands who claim to be “atmospheric” fail to
deliver. The temptation to choose heaviness over melody and aura is
just too high. That is not the case with “Redemption” by ENNOVEN.
Mateusz paints a magical landscape that is both desolate and alluring,
and a place you can only find in your dreams. Though it has only four
songs, it feels like a complete story, so any more might interfere. The
album will seduce you, and I am happy to hear that Northern Silence
Productions is bringing it back around."

"Fazit: Ennoven hat mit diesem Album ein Kunstwerk veröffentlicht, was
leider viel zu wenig Beachtung geschenkt bekommt. Ein „Muss“ für
Freunde des Atmospheric Black Metal."

is a very textured release. The album contains sprawling, expansive
soundscapes that paint a darkened picture of the natural world. There’s
harshness here, of course, just as there is in nature, but there’s also
The artist weaves layers of nuance and depth into
the music, with colourful resplendent melodies and shaded introspective
reflection taking turns at the fore of the songs. There’s a lot of
depth and nuance in these tracks, created with ease as the music flows
through the playing time like a largely untroubled body of moving
water. [...] Redemption is a mature and engaging piece of work that
achieves what it sets out to do quite easily. The album contains a lot
of content for anyone into textured atmospheric black metal and the
entire release is very enjoyable."
