Sorizon's second album Somnus is the groups power loaded nimble release, one where the riffs hook in hard thanks to Sorizon's "radical" style of heavy metal with the powerful intensity of groups like Helstar. I hadn't heard this American band previously and after listening to Somnus I am certainly not complaining that the opportunity to do so has now presented itself.
Vocals are clean though sometimes an ominous darker side does appear, and their music includes a staunch brand of progressive/power metal, while it is nothing revolutionary Sorizon got it right on Somnus. Sorizon tease us with a short but sweet instrumental titled "Hypnagogia" and then hit hyper drive for "Captor of Dreams" a thunderous melodic metal tune, powering on for "Escaping the Witch" and from the introduction this bands music once again really kicks you in the butt."Morpheus" should be of interest to fans of such metal groups as Into Eternity with that mixture of clean and sinister vocals and potent gripping technical metal.
Somnus shows that Sorizon sure have the necessary musicianship and know how to put together an intense metal album one with a magnetic quality.
