Mondrian Oak: Aeon

Mondrian Oak are back and ready to take you on a journey through a soundscape of darkness and heaviness.

On Aeon, Mondrian Oak deliver crushingly heavy, yet expressive and strangely haunting, sludged-up post metal, whose heavy beats and sludgy riffage, in conjunction with atmospheric breakdowns and softer passages, are bound to bring the listener into a trance-like state. Being one hundred percent instrumental, there are vocals or no lyrics to distract you. There is only a heavy bass, heavy but mildly distorted guitars, and big booming drums to paint your day black with musical bleakness - which is especially well captures in '6'.

For a sludge release, then, Aeon is definitely successful. It is very expressive and doom-laden, still with a feel of dark psychedelia. While there is a bit of noise-inspiration and dissonance every now and then, Aeon is perhaps more friendly towards listeners who are not familiar with the more experimental branches of sludge music, and might even prove to be a good entry point into the genre. Fans of doom metal might also appreciate this album for the very heavy and slow beats that it features.
