Onirism are a solo project from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays an ambient form of black metal and this is a review of his 2018 album "Falling Moon" which was released by Naturmacht Productions.
Keyboards start off the album and also bringing in a variety of many different sounding keys while also mixing in ambient and atmospheric elements while programmed beats are also used at times and they are also mixed into the heavier sections of the songs as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams, clean vocals can also be heard at times as well as the faster sections of t he songs bringing in a great amount of blast beats.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the tremolo picking also gives the songs a more raw feeling along with some female vocals also being used at times as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a couple of interludes and symphonic elements can also be heard.
Onirism creates another recording that continues the ambient black metal sound he introduced on the previous ep, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover lucid dreaming themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Onirism and if you are a fan of ambient black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "See The End Of The Worlds" "I'm Dying Again" "When Titans Awake" and "The Celestial Calling". 8/5 out of 10.
