Musically the album is gothic metal with doom metal type slow tempo and gothic rock influenced guitars. The atmosphere is romantic, ethereal, and dark. The vocals are shared between the drummer-vocalist Robert Baum and the female singer Ada Sazrata, who was originally a session musician on the album but joined the band officially later. Baum's vocals range from mid-range to low baritone, and Szarata's vocals are ethereal and mid range in the pitch. The album received a positive reception and was called original by critics.
