Somnus Aeturnus are a band from the Czech Republic that plays a very atmospheric form of doom/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2009 demo.
Drums are all slow playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars are all slow and heavy doom/death metal riffs that utilize some dark sounding melodies in the riffing which bring back the early 90's sound, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep doom/death metal growls with some spoken word parts as well as some high pitched screams which brings a black metal feeling to t he recording, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Somnus Aeturnus are a very great sounding atmospheric doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Purgatorium". RECOMMENDED BUY.
