Onirik - Casket Dream Veneration (2015)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Onirik - Songs for the Apocalipse (2005)

The latest LP from one of Portugal's best. Casket Dream Veneration finds Onirik fleshing out their sound while honing in on some of their most compelling qualities, crafting a sequence of midtempo aural rituals marked by sickening, dissonant melodies, haunting clean vocals, and hypnotic compositional consistency.

Track listing:
1. Requiem for a Profane Liberation
2. Invocation & Defiance
3. Reverent to the Flames
4. Casket Dream Veneration
5. Ascension & Descent
6. I Am Him But He Is Not Me
7. Disputant by Enlightenment
8. Versos De Um Ritual

Illusions that melt within the clouds
