Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Colombian duo Adeonesis last year struck back with their third full length album. Driven by the brothers Wilger and Ferry (who’s also involved in his solo-project Nohycit) this band doesn’t release a new work on a regular basis. There’s a hiatus of four years between each full length.
Content: Adeonesis are moving on the path of darkest Electro fields. The songs are driven by pumping rhythms and supported by overwhelming leads. The songs are sung in their Mother tongue and are extremely rough and hard to understand. A few tracks feature female vocals (backings) injecting a somewhat angelic touch to the work. One of the songs is featuring Stahlnebel & Black Selket.
+ + + : Adeonesis stands for (h)el(l)ectro although the female vocals featured at a few tracks are injecting an unexpected, classical and graceful touch. It might sound like a contract, but finally appears to be complementary with the harshness of the duo. This work is not just into merciless power, but still revealing more refined passages accomplished with subtle arrangements. I was impressed by some of the leads hanging over the composition.
– – – : The sound formula is somewhat repetitive and becomes a little bit predictable after a while. That’s a point I already noticed from previous albums.
Conclusion: This album comes directly from hell and will for sure please the darkest Electro souls.
Best songs: “Psychophony”, “Oblivion”, “Sendero Nocturno”.
