"It's hard to throw the word genius around. There will be backlash, questioning, even ridicule. But what Viktor Jonas has shown, release after release, album after album, is that he is playing on a far different level than everyone else. He is a multi-million dollar corporation, erecting a skyscraper with the help of plans, machinery, and state of the art equipment; everyone else is back in Amish country, raising a barn. That isn't a knock on other bands who dwell in the same genre as Jonas, and by no means is it meant to tear anyone down. But after hearing what this one man puts together, it's hard to believe there are even bands in the same stratosphere. But luckily, he isn't alone; Grüning has written and delivered a performance of his own, one that completes the scope of the album. One without the other might not stand as tall, or even as firmly. But together, they are undeniable in their excellence. And while many have declared the death/doom genre dead, year after year, it's still alive and well. Apathy may have just erected a new headquarters, "Beneath The Ashen Sky."
