In 2010, the band released a self-titled EP which garnered some highly enthusiastic reactions in their home country and in early 2014 they issued their first full-length album “Omonoia”. Incorporating elements from psychedelic-rock and sludge-seeping doom, “Omonoia” received some highly positive reviews in international press. Exclaim! Magazine for instance called it “… a multilayered masterpiece combining the raw power of sludge metal tempered with psychedelic soundscapes orchestrated by a kaleidoscope of instrumental effects.” Cvlt Nation also commended the album stating that Allochiria “…certainly has its own unique way of crafting tracks and raising ambiances,” while Echoes and Dust offered the following praise “…this is a haunting and intense listen which shows a superb band in complete control as they delve into your psych and twist it.”
