Somnium Sanguis Caelestis/Veneno Astrum Draconis/2012 Album Review

Somnium Sanguis Caelestis  are  a  band  from  Greece  that  plays  a  mixture  of  ritual,  dark  ambient,  drone  and  experimental  music  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Veneo  Astrum  Draconis"  which  was  released  by  Kalpamantra.


  Synths  bring  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  music  with  influences  from  both  experimental  and  dark  ambient  music,  while t he  sound  effects  bring  the  drone  and  ritualistic  parts  to  the  music  along  with  some  occult  sounding  drum  programming.


  Vocals  are  all  spoken  word  parts  and  ritualistic  chanting,  while  the  song  themes  cover  dark,  occult,  ritual  and  Luciferian  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a very  dark  and  primitive  sound  to  to  it.


  In  my  opinion  Somnium  Sanguis  Caelistis  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  dark  ambient,  drone,  ritual  and  experimental  music  and  if you  are  a  fan  of  this  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Invocation-The  Voice  Of  A  Splintered  Starlight" "Aspiration-Inner  Cathedral"  "Communion-In  Lux Lucifera"  and  "Metamorphosis-Consumed  By  Poison,  Scorched  In  Black  Flame".  RECOMMENDED.
