Third full-length album by Polish Symphonic Black/Death Metal band.
This Polish troupe, consisting amongst others of Orion from BEHEMOTH, Daray from VADER, seem to be on the verge of breaking through to a larger audience. The fact that VESANIA can boast of featuring artists from Poland's two biggest musical exports shouldn't be an obstacle for the band's prowess either. The cover art of "Distractive Killusions" portrays a sinister-looking jester mask sporting a twisted smile, giving the impression of a nightmare' carnival. This theme is carried on through most of the album. The music itself is carried by some very fast and impressive drumming, courtesy of Daray, together with epic guitarwork and keyboards that don't sound entirely dissimilar to DIMMU BORGIR. Orion's growling vocals are nothing spectacular, but they work well enough against the sometimes theatrical music. This theatricality can be extremely bombastic and over the top at times, but coupled with the more melodic keyboard passages it avoids straying into the territory of downright self-parody. The epic keyboard brass segments matching well with the brutal drumming and guitars. Orion's vocals have become more decipherable along with his improved English.

Fans of Symphonic Black Metal will love the bombastic grandeur and great musicianship of the band!!
