Debut EP Release.
Somnent is a solo melodic doom/death project which began in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Musical themes include personal struggle, death, nature, and the meaning of life and consciousness. While inspiration comes from an array of sources both musical and non-musical.
The debut EP titled “Eventide” was mixed, mastered, and produced by Giovanni A. Vigliotti at Diagnostic Studios during the summer of 2015. Originally the album was released as a digital album on June 26, 2015 but after a positive response, was released on Russian label GS Productions in February 2016 as a limited edition digipack.
Giovanni A. Vigliotti: Everything
"..The musical stamina this one man band shows is very unique. With a wide range on this EP from metal to doom/death rock is a rare talent going from track to track so easily. With a slower intro into the Metal on the Track ‘Eventide’ and a more steady impacted doom metal on the track ‘Relinquished’."
"Such a solidly Eurocentric sound might be a little unexpected for a US-based band.. The half-hour EP seldom relents from a polished, mid-tempo pace that almost enthusiastically enfolds the gloominess of the themes, packed with the evocative and well-handled guitar that carries all of the major instrumental work.. if you need a new fix of unpretentiously classic-sounding melodic Death/Doom, it's well worth taking a listen to this."
"I give it two thumbs up!"
