Vita_666_666_666 This album rocks so hard. I discovered this band only a few years ago and was seduced by their ethereal, experimental sound, the unusual arrangements/mixes, the way the songs flow together, the ineffable "vibe" factor...this album does what any great new release does and builds on the band's past, while pointing towards an exciting and surprising future. HNIA have made a thrilling, unusual, very-proggy record that rocks without being rockist. Enjoy the ride....

Henrik Thøgersen This albums opens doors to a secret realm of stellar beauty. The surprising mixture of infectuous grooves and killer riffs dressed in swirls of exquisite vocals and hypnotic syntheziser swells had me crying tears of joy. A rare discovery!

James Higgins Every record this band releases is original and individual. Each release carries certain emotions for me. I remember first hearing Livonia in 1990 on college radio. There was nothing quite like it then. My interest was piqued. Then on to Home is in Your Head I realized I was hooked on the songwriting. The releases to follow were different and in their own context original. Each release is musically diverse. Patterns of Light is a solid rock record that still retains the band's experimental side Favorite track: Silver Arc Curving in the Magnetic Field.

Having been invited to perform at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland by one of the scientists, HNIA spent a year studying particle physics and then created Patterns of Light. The scientist, Dr. James Beacham, was asked to "fact check for bad data, misquotes, dragons, pseudoscience and to make sure the witchcraft to physics ratio wouldn't be too embarrassing," he agreed and soon sent pages of notes, screenshots, event displayes and also recommended books and videos.

Patterns of Light is the result of this exchange of information. The research focuses on dark matter, dark energy, the search for extra dimensions, mini-black holes and the machinery that collides particles at high speeds using thirteen teraelectronvolts but also studies the fundamental forces of nature as seen through the classic creation myths, the visionary theology of Hildegard Von Bingen, medieval manuscripts and cosmic maps, all in an effort to turn the physics back into poetry.

"It fucking rules, like early Rush + Hawkwind + Outer Space" - Steve

"A psychedelic protometal prog instant classic that fell out of the sky of space time from 1973, you'll be shaking your ass to the hottest jams you'll ever hear" - Christian

"Give me fuzz, give me wah, all your noise are belong to me. Fuck what you heard, cowards, psych will never die but you will. Allelujah Ascend Fuck" - Brian
