4 stars The melodic neo-progressive and symphonic hard rock band SONUS UMBRA was formed out of the band RADIO SILENCE. They have both female and male vocals. The songs have great melodies with an overall beautiful, calm, dark and melancholic mood. The music is a mix between ALAN PARSONS, CAMEL, FISH, KURGAN'S BANE, MARILLION and PINK FLOYD with a 70's progressive sound with lots of acoustic guitars and some complex moments. Some of the songs are brilliant while some are middle-of-the-road stuff. The highlight are the opening "Ghosts From The Past", the complex instrumental RUSH-influenced "Doppelganger", "Demons", "The Eagle Has Landed", " Homo Homini Lupus" and the instrumental "Erich Zann". Some of the songs are a little bit to calm and uninteresting, but overall this is a nice album with great musicians. The Moonchild label are unfortunately no longer in existence, but the band has been signed to the Musea label so eventually they will get a worldwide distribution.
