Onirism are a solo project from France that recently have had an album reviewed in this zine and plays a symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 ep "The Well Of Stars".
Atmospheric sounds start off the ep and also start evolving into more of a symphonic direction after a few seconds while also having the epic feeling of a fantasy movie and on the second tracks the symphonic elements get mixed in with the heavier sound and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard and the solos and leads are d one in a very melodic fashion and the vocals are mostly high pitched screams and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of medieval folk music can be heard in the music at times and a couple of the tracks are all instrumental.
Onirism creates another recording that remains true to the epic and symphonic style of black metal that he had established on the previous release, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover lucid dreams themes while also having a concept to them.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Onirism and if you are a fan of symphonic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Well Of Starts Part II' and "The Endless Ride of heavens". 8 out of 10.
