"Like a nautical ghost story painted without words, Norway’s Svartsinn weaves a foreboding electronic soundtrack to serve as fuel for vivid nightmares."
from the Re:Gen Magazine

"Svartsinn has achieved an impressive aural document that transports the listener out of the mundane depositing the unsuspecting in a dark domain filled with writhing dark ambient music"
- from Heathen Harvest

"Jan Roger Pettersen keeps on feeding the paths and landscapes of his own imagination with an infinite process of constant renovation, which means a dynamic variety of sounding shapes over a static general vein. There is not a single space for distraction; he always obliges the listener to be immersed without a single pause within the great scope of its own music"
