With masterly arranged, but very colossal sonorous undertones, driven by a fury that builds wrathful harmonies filled with spirited twists and dark shifts, the tempestuous pace and the aggressive lines of the rhythms are really well defined in a very solid basis, that gives no space for easy or common ground melodies. With a more meticulous line of work, that conflagrates a heavy sound in the context of a melodic style, Oneironaut is a solid album, free of the common trends that are so redundant and abundant within the genre nowadays. With pungent and effusively solid guitar lines, that strongly holds the basis for the melodies in each track, the ground upon which the musicality holds itself is very well structured and mature, and never relies on inconsistent patterns to secure the fidelity of its own pace.
Nonetheless, given the fact that the songs are very long, the album inevitably resents itself of some uniformity within the sound, which is totally comprehensible, since the album presents from the beginning a very elusive, but cohesive style. Unfortunately, unavoidably the little rhythmic dissonances within the record give space to a sense of monotony, although this is a minor problem. In general, the songs are not just interesting and refreshingly creative, but are filled with a unique charm, and very smooth peculiarities, as the album holds itself very well all the way through.
Although in my conception the album cannot be regarded as a masterpiece, it is, indeed, a very good work. Oneironaut is undoubtedly filled with interesting peculiarities, beautiful harmonies, an astounding and promising sense of creativity, and a singular sense of discipline. Outstretched by marvelous elements, borrowed from the singularities of a hidden, oblique, and grotesquely calculated universe, Oneironaut is an intense, fast and punctual album. Settled at the diagram of a mathematical conjuncture very well gifted, this album certainly will give you great moments of very well-conceived and marvelous extreme metal harmonies.
