…a journey through the deepest nordic forests and mountains… A. and S. (Armagedda,Leviathan (swe) and LIK) captured songs that allow the listener to embark on a gloomy journey into the magical realms of the north. A nostalgic and melancholic blend of Metal, Rock and fragile Folk music in the best way, engraved from the pure magic and mystery along with the outstanding beauty of the northern landscape, the whole atmosphere and lyrics create a dreamy yet hypnotising aura that absorbs the whole record until the end. Lönndom contains a huge mix of thoughts from the past along with thoughts of today. They subdue relatively simple forms when performing the music - enjoyment comes through feelings and not through quality !
"Words will never reflect the manifold facets of “Fälen Från Norr”, the debut album of Lönndom, a group from Northern Sweden. Formed in 2006, these two musicians have a truly individual and sensitive approach towards nature and spiritual matters, thus the darkness in their music is much deeper and authentic than you might imagine if you know that it is still somehow rooted in the early Nordic black metal. The atmosphere builds upon the sound and is thus dim and dark as well, but extremely manifold, reflecting the perceptions of the musicians’ surroundings in the homeland of the “midnight sun”. This is not one of the oh so many new and oh so brilliant albums that you need to buy in order to complete your music collection “Fälen Från Norr” can’t complete collections of standardized items of a sterile industry , it can only break out of the narrow clichés and open new horizons." TW of Trollmusic/Legacy
“The album committed by LÖNNDOM is definitely worth giving it a try no matter if you are a Black or Folk Metal fan, though there is some risk you will not accept it thinking this includes too many somewhat experimental fragments. I myself am pretty impressed by “Fälen Från Norr.” 8,5 out of 10 - THE METAL OBSERVER
“Altogether this debut is an album, which took me immediately with its oppressing atmosphere , imprisoned, even bewitched me.
I can`t really remember, when I had the last time a so strong feeling of “old times” if I got presented a new album.

“It will be obvious that this album will not appeal to everybody. Yet we can see this as a laudable expression of pure emotion. When you want to ban the hectic world outside for a while and you want to taste pure nature in your glass of wine on a dark winter's evening, well, give this a try.” - LORDS OF METAL
“This is a difficult album to get a handle on, shifting between moods, atmospheres and soundscapes in almost every song – there’s a lot in here to discover but as a listener you’ll have to be prepared to make the effort. A compelling and artistically valid oddity to be sure but don’t say I didn’t warn you…” - METALTEAM UK
