Somnuri are a North American progressive sludge metal band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2015. Their current lineup consists of founding members Justin Sherrell (guitars/vocals) and Phil SanGiancomo (drums), along with recent additions Mike Gaworecki (bass) and Chris Drapeau (guitars). Somnuri's origin began in a shared rehearsal space, where Sherrell overheard the drumwork of SanGiancomo through the wall, inspiring him to reach out to collaborate.

Currently signed to MNRK Heavy, Somnuri's atypical sludge metal attack bridges influences from progressive rock, grunge, and other sludge/post-metal groups like Mastodon, Deftones, Isis, High on Fire and Jesu, and more post-hardcore oriented artists such as Karp, Quicksand, Handsome and Helmet. Beginning with a 2015 demo, Somnuri's discography has grown to include a split with like-minded group Godmaker and three full-length albums to their name: 2017's self-titled, 2021's Nefarious Wave and 2023's Desiderium. The band also celebrated their inspirations with contributions to Magnetic Eye Records' Redux Series, covering Pink Floyd's "Sheep", Alice in Chains' "Dirt" and Soundgarden's "Mailman".

Similar artists in the archives include Baroness, Kylesa, Timeworn, Inter Arma, Witch Ripper, the Atlas Moth and Dvne.
