Μaπ Β Fantastic album! Some different styles and influences explored here and I love them all! It's an instant favorite and I can tell I'll listen again and again for years to come.

It made for a memorable soundtrack to a long drive deep into lush forests and rainy mountain passes. Favorite track: Hroniglas II.

The 21st full length release on Greyscale is by none other than the home town hero Sraunus. A veteran of the label, we are thrilled to have the fellow Lithuanian back once again. The depth of 'Surrealismus' is nothing short of amazing. How only 7 tracks feels deeper than any double CD set, we are still trying to uncover and understand the entire scope of this release. Sonically, it is a true gem of pushing the limits. Idea wise, this album is cohesive and awe-inspiring. 'Holowuka' is beautiful and gentle opener. It sets off a serene almost deep sea diving atmosphere with the long delays and low frequency chords vibrating through. The melodic elements open up even more, a vast world as the track evolves. From the low key and moody to the pumping aggressiveness that is 'Hroniglas II'. A true monster with a sick combination of trance and deep techno thrills. 'Jueootas' conjures of memories of 1990s ambient techno with the light and airy feeling of nostalgia. A lovely adventure on the high seas. 'Jurgynas' continues this theme with a beautiful ride into a sound that is blissful and forever. Some of the most soothing dub techno we have heard yet. 'Lapunai' is another strong candidate for being our most favorite on the album. Featuring what sounds like excerpts of violin's over some amazing layered melodies. A shinning moment and a perfect example of a dub techno track's emotional potential. Lastly, 'Ramunanas' submerges us in a beatless (but not bassline-less) sphere of magical and shimmering sounds. A true master-class of more ambient dub techno. Sraunus is back and if 'Surrealismus' is any example of what he has in store, then everyone should bookmark his choice where he shares his latest news. We think this could revival any dub techno release for album of the year. It's that good!
