4 stars That's the way Nu Metal could have been developing. Angry riffs, simple grooves (well, somtimes not that simple at all!), harsh vocals - but it's far more progressive than all LIMP BIZKIT and LINKIN PARK albums taken together (though the latter promise 'something progressive' for their upcoming record). Nu Metal really had it moments - with bands like DEFTONES and SYSTEM OF A DOWN it could have been much better than it is now. By the way, SICMONIC's Taylor Hession has this obvious Tankjanish manner of singing, and that doesn't sound like borrowed. Musically "Somnambulist" is somewhere in between MASTODON and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, with highlights like "Just How Far Down Do You Want To Go?" (this violin solo just drives me insane!) and "Acid Epiphanies" (what a name for a track!). If you're into Nu Prog Metal - try this one without hesitation!
