Särart H Productions 1999 New release Prikosnovénie France 2005 Order from Nosag Records
"There's a lot in this album, there are folk elements, there's a veil of sacred and an overall mystical atmosphere that is the right ingredient for re-conciliating with our own souls, which some need badly these days. Karin's vocal work is superb, comparisons have been drawn to the likes of Lisa Gerrard, which are not very far from the truth indeed. Even fairy moments creep in, making this album a surprise to discover track after track. .. it is guaranteed to be a soul uplifting experience."
The Darklife Fanzine 2007
