This is an interesting EP from a band who are incorporating the sort of melodic sweep that has come to epitomize the US school of Cascadian Black Metal into a Death Metal base. Somnae are undeniably DM, with a downtuned guitar tone and deep guttural vocals, but they incorporate a Doomy sound that calls to mind Novembers Doom and rapid tremolo picking that calls to mind bands like Wolves in the Throne Room. It makes for an interesting and fresh kind of sound while still staying within the bounds of the genre. I am all about seeing what this band will do with a full-length, as I think it could be pretty awesome. This is the only demo in weeks I have played through twice in a row. Good shit.
