The second time I heard the whole album I had started to love it. Lost Kingdom are very relaxed but always with a feeling of mysticism. A very solid and good debut album from Waerloga Records. (Ivan Racheck)
Chain D.L.K. (4/5)
The work of brothers Tjernberg shows taste, genuine passion and a wonderful gift of writing and arranging music. It is only right to applaud this wonderful debut. (Roberto Alessandro Filippozzi)
Darkroom Magazine (7/10)
Lost Kingdom makes the perfect soundtrack music for fantasy games such as Morrowind and Oblivion, but I would not be surprised if the music at some point will be used in a movie too.
The tracks are diverse, each one has a dynamic of its own, and so we can mention it all as an album fully diversified in classicism.
True classic orchestrations here, with no martial overtones.
[As The New Dawn Awakes] is done with the same good taste, talent and elegance that Lost Kingdom has become known for.
Lost Kingdom’s songwriting skills adhere to melody, where an organic correlation between folk music, film music, dark ambient and jazz strike a nicely balanced chord. It’s easily one of the top albums of this genre.
Musical Zone Japan (4.65/5)
As The New Dawn Awakes is an incredibly impressive soundtrack. If mellow, relaxing sounds are what you’re after, then look no further, you’ve found it with this wonderful collection of beautiful tracks.
