"I've given Another World quite a few listens, and I'm honestly not quite sure whether I like it more or less than Under A Godless Veil; both are very well-composed, consistently enjoyable efforts. Nevertheless, the difficulty I have in separating the two is a good indicator of what good work the two bands have done, and Langhans has been an integral part of both albums' excellence."
The dialog in "Another World" is taken from a favourit movie of me. Needless to say, the book is even better. Great album with a dense atmosphere and vast soundscapes!

Everybody knows Draconian, and by now many know Sojourner too. Light Field Reverie is what happened when the two ends met: Heike Langhans (Draconian, Lorelei) and her soothing voice join bassist Scotty Lodge (Sojourner) and guitarist, keyboardist and producer Mike Lamb (Sojourner) on a completely new trip.
Another World is the very first release from the newborn band, a collection of songs moving liquidly between gothic and doom metal, with a robust injection of synths and drones, so much that there are moments where metal is nowhere to be found. You can very well hear every past and present experience from Heike’s music career: her personal darkwave project Lorelei, the melancholic drones from Ison and the gloomy atmosphere of Draconian all merge with Mike’s melodic and layered songwriting we’ve been able to enjoy in Sojourner.
To describe their work, the band chose these words: “Written and recorded during the global turbulence of 2020, 'Another World' is a passion project imbued with the deeply personal concepts of home, belonging, and finding light in an uncertain world. Alongside these themes, the album is full of references and tributes to some of the influences that have shaped and inspired us both as people and artists. The themes of songs refefence games, books and films we love, and the whole work is infused with 80's and 90's nostalgia”.
The result is something entirely different, which you’re not used to listening and you wouldn’t think you could find on Avantgarde Music. There is some metal here and there, and in “Ghost Bird”, definitely the heaviest piece of the lot, you also have Emilio Crespo, Sojourner frontman, coming in with his deep growl. But all in all Light Field Reverie is something else. You may call it darkwave, you may call it “alternative”, you may even dare with electronic music, but at the end of the day all that really matter is that Another World is a mixture of different experiences, and you can discover its beauty and elegance on November, 20 (digital / CD) and December, 11 (vinyl).

probably some of the most emotional depressive music i've ever heard, each chord washing over you like waves of depression.
NONE is an incredible band and this is absolutely their best to date, in both song writing and mixing. mandybb

Fantastic album,its "abandon all hope & integrity" in musical form. You can listen to it,hit repeat and still be entertained all day. Heavy flow of melodies & screams, the tracks don't drag or have any filler that won't belong. If you like DSBM you'll enjoy this Tleilaxu

A truly stellar death/doom album with heavy doses of black metal. Tracks like Isolation, Child of Light, and Broken Hymns deliver the sorrowful and icy tone of this album, elevated by the stirring cello compositions of Raphael Weinroth-Browne. The album delivers a deeply satisfying crescendo in Becoming Intangible before stirring the soul once again with Epilogue. Matt Richardson
