5 stars It's almost criminal to me the almost total lack of attention being given to the new album by Sonus Umbra. Easily the best album yet from this band, and I liked the other 3 but Winter Soulstice raises the bar big time , mainly because it is almost a totally different band , the exception being Luis Nassar who is the leader of this band and always was he is and has always been the principle songwriter and is also a fine bass player, getting to for the first time concentrate almost solely on playing bass whereas in the old formation he played a little bit of everything. Funnily enough as good as this album is, especially musically , the band now consists of 7 full time members (including the lead singer who I don't believe plays any instruments) and these guys bring it, Nassar has assembled an outstanding group of musicians. But back to the funnily enough part, it still sounds like a Sonus Umbra album, thanks to the lyrics that Luis writes. But this new band takes it to another level musically. For me this is one of the best albums I have heard in 2013 and I hope it gets the recognition that it deserves. And there is more good news , they are getting ready to go into the studio in January , 2014 to start recording the next one, I know I'll be looking forward to it.

RJN | 5/5 |
