Amethystium is a musical project founded around 1998. Hard to pigeon-hole as belonging in one specific category, the music can be described as a blend of new age, darkwave, ethno-ambient and electronica. Sonicly it ranges from dreamy and relaxing, to relatively upbeat, all with an evoking, atmospheric, and sometimes dark and moody soundscape.

Norwegian composer/producer Oystein Ramfjord's Amethystium is an adventure in modern electronic music (of the non-dance variety). Much in the vein of the Orb and Enigma, Isabliss strides the divisions between new age meditation, ambient dreaminess, and pop/rock grooves. Unlike some other electronica projects, Amethystium is also slightly more based in rock (i.e., the occasional sweeping guitar solo or steady pulsing rhythm). But the dreamy, surreal Isabliss ultimately lives up to the wordplay in its title…

The word "lush" can be defined with a single word: Odonata. That's the title of the debut CD from Oystein Ramfjord, who records as Amethystium. This album is sure to find a new audience eager for its seamless blend of sensuous beats (a la Enigma and Delerium), sampled vocals, wooden flutes/pan pipes, and ultra-smooth synths. This is one highly polished effort. It's infectious yet humanistic musical heaven.

Aphelion is Amethystium’s follow up to their much praised debut, Odonata. Similar in style and mood, Aphelion is a masterful and mysterious blend of subliminal synths, ambient beats, angelic vocals and eastern inspirations. A deep, rich and moody soundscape, it begins with 'Shadow to Light' that conjures mysterious feelings of awe. This is music for wild imaginations and otherworldly dreamers. Close your eyes and imagine walking through dark ancient forests with glimmers of sunlight lighting the way…

Amethystium's 'Evermind' is the 3rd installment in the 'Dragonfly Trilogy' series from Norwegian composer Oystein Ramfjord. A trilogy that has taken us across extraordinary lands where fantasy meets the distant imagination, and the days and nights intermingle within dreams of the subconscious. The soaring heights of the album's cinematic soundscapes are paired with the intelligent electronics and synthetic artistry that ties the entire trilogy together.

Oystein Ramsfjord would be a great name for a Norwegian death metal guitarist. But this Ramsfjord has opted for electronic keyboards and opulent music in the guise of Amethystium. Like his fanciful stage name, derived from the gem Amethyst, Ramsfjord's music is full of fantasy imagery. Titles such as "Arcus," "Shadowlands" and "Satori" give you a glimpse into a music where pristine sounds and descending-from-the-heavens synthesizers charge heroic melodies coasting atop an array of propulsive, almost danceable rhythm loops. Each successive Amethystium CD has gotten a bit less edgy, sweeter in their melodies and plusher in their arrangements, and while he doesn't step over the line into electro-Muzak, he comes close. In the past, his music has been likened to an imaginary soundtrack for The Lord of Rings, but Evermind is more pastoral elfin kingdoms and peaceful shires than storming orcs and demonic wizards. A little bit of that edge, a bit of depth beyond the pretty sounds, might make Evermind more profound than just pleasant listening.

While not without flaws, this second release from Amethystium, aka Oystein Ramfjord (a twenty-something producer from Norway), is another appealing assortment of trance/space/pop/new age textures that may not fully transport you to another dimension, but will set an interesting audio backdrop for the evening. Ramfjord creates inviting, slightly sweetened, slightly mysterious electronic atmospheres, all nudged along by polite grooves and an assortment of subtle, Enigma inspired audio totems (native flutes, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern vocals). Amethystium is not quite a peer of Enigma, acting more like a mild-mannered distant relative. Stylistic comparisons to Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark¸ Mythos, and even Vangelis are also likely to come to mind. Ramfjord's higher-pitched keyboard voices occasionally break the spell his music works hard to cast (as in "Garden of Sakuntala," a pity), but it's a tolerable glitch in this largely inviting 59-minute moodsetter, one that is almost identical in flavor to his debut Odonata.

Amethystium is Norwegian producer Oystein Ramjford on a solo mission. The name is not as memorable as Tangerine Dream or Deep Forest, yet musically, Amethystium shares common ground with both acts. Ramjford's mix of electronics, pop-dance rhythms, and some requisite sonic oddities (subdued Middle Eastern vocals, Gregorian chant, random dollops of native flutes) yields solid results, offering sufficient style and mystery to merit repeated play on an out-there, candlelit night. Amethystium could be described as a subtler Delirium, a less self-conscious Enigma, or a second cousin to Mythos. Ramjford favors a lighter, spacier vibe than most of the aforementioned acts, though. And at his best (on sparkling/pulsing tracks such as "Calantha," "Odyssey," and "Arcane Voices"), he sends an intriguing helix of melody lines on a slow swirl through inviting atmospheric fields. Pedestrian rhythms diminish some tracks, but Odonata remains a promising debut.
