TAR074 Axioma - Opia
Axioma is a Cleveland, Ohio based band melding elements of post, death & dark atmospheric metal. Formed by guitarist Cyril Blandino (Ex-Morgue[France], Forged in Flame), bassist/vocalist Aaron Dallison (Keelhaul, Brain Tentacles), drummer Jon Vinson (Forged in Flame, Jesus Egg) & guitarist Justin Meyers (Aureae Crucis). The band released its debut album “Opia” is a dark unorthodox mixture of Neurosis, Morbid Angel & Gorguts style arrangements with bleak lyrical context and artwork. Challenging the accepted formats for heavy music Axioma carves a dismal yet progressive path through the soundscape.
"Assembling current and former members of Keelhaul, Aureae Crucis, among others, Cleveland’s Axioma dish out raw and abysmal post-black metal on their debut EP, Opia. Comprised of five songs and roughly 26 minutes of content, Opia plummets listeners into a dark auditory chasm of which no light escapes." -Svbterranean
