4 stars French outfit LEMURYA has been around for a few years now, and while the information about its formation is rather sparse it would appear that the band's first public appearances was held back in 2007. Since then it has recorded and released two EPs. "Soma" is their full length debut production, and was issued on the AMMD label in 2010.

"Soma" is an album that will yield many rewards to those who appreciate music made with innovation in mind and does so whilst blending rock, metal and fusion with a firm foundation in the art rock universe; slightly unwieldy, so to speak, not always perfect, but striving for the unpredictable and unexpected. If music described as avant-garde and eclectic tends to intrigue you or The Mars Volta and Mr. Bungle are amongst your preferred artists, Lemurya is most likely a band you'd want to investigate. Those who have a soft spot for later day King Crimson are another audience that, I think, will have a rather good chance to understand and appreciate the accomplishments of this fine French quartet.
