Onségen Ensemble - Awalaï (2016)
The debut album from this band from Finland.
The band is a trio with a lineup of bass, guitars, keyboards, drums and some vocals.
Onsegen Ensemble released a couple of EPs ten years ago and then disappeared. Then they shows up again with this full length album.
Most of the album consists of those two EPs and does not contains much news if you have those two EPs.
Onsegen Ensemble does heavy, heavy psych with a lot of space and garage rock influences. As sweet and short as that.
There is a lot of guitar walls here and it feels like the listener is walking through a room of guitars - blindfolded. Various disharmonic sounds is the result of a tour like that.
But this album is not chaos. It is just really heavy with lots of heavy guitars. And there is a lot of good riffs and hooks here. There is a lot of good moods on this forty odd minutes long album too.
The vocals works as sound effects and the bass and drums is howling around in the background.
This is a good old style dirty heavy space rock album and it is a good one too. Check out this album.
