...with the new album...these Ukrainian purveyors of stoner-driven psychedelic prog rock have made a few steps forward.Musically speaking, I can say that nothing surprised me that much since the Sleep days. The sound is polarized and it acts as a peak-to-peak amplitude being both heavy and atmospheric throughout the record. Heavy structures wrapped around with organic soundscapes makes the whole Aeonian experience feel more like a spiritual journey, and that is very well established since the mentioned 2011′s debut.
Aeonian is divided into four massive tracks that showcase a masterfully crafted unison between a riff and melody, with plenty of other elements building the album’s core. Besides standard studio set-up, Aeonian includes parts performed on djembe, didgeridoo, flute and cello, what definitely goes with the group’s aim to create unconventional music. The album is accompanied with a book that follows the story told through the music.
