about

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!"

Track Name: Achromic
Once again I’m left to find my way
Wondering where I belong
Standing on the edge of life
Waiting for no one to save me now

The colors of life fade
As a torrent of sorrow comes down
I can no longer abide
With these feelings held deep inside

All inner strength is gone
And all that’s left is a figure so frail
Sleepless nights waiting for the sun
Insomnia is all that’s left

Time keeps moving on
As this torment is felt for so long
And so I’m left alone
While I’m feeling sorry for myself

Wishing to start over again
Living a life full of regret
Writhing and screaming in agony
A sorrow that’s too much to bear
Track Name: Eventide
In the night when the pain won’t go away
I turn to you
The one I old so dear
But there are times when nothing can take away
The guilt and shame that dwells within my heart
So I cry
Turn my face and hide
Wishing that you could feel what is inside
How I long for a single moments rest
And remove the sting that burns within my chest

No one can heal the wounds
No one can hear the cries
A rapture of the mind
As something inside me dies
Like a burning star that never will touch the ground
No life within these eyes
For death makes not a sound

There is no future
No present
No past
Only now in a self created hell
The skies weep with the whisper of my name
For they know I’m the only one to blame
And as I try to continue moving forward
As this burden keeps on weighing down
And I am left to suffer on my own
To wander this world in which I’ve been thrown
Track Name: Awakening
The roots of the Earth have taken you away
Our souls were made to feed the soil
Searching for purpose in life again

Reaching for the sun
Seeking to find warmth
But all that remains is dead air

This flesh was made to keep us from the truth
One day we will return to the stars
And all will be revealed

Our time will come
As all things must come to an end
A pitiful existence
Its time to move on
Track Name: Relinquished
O’ life you have failed me
And I am left with nothing
A soul meant not for this world
A tragedy left to unfold
And all I feel is cold
A blackness has filled my heart
As I am left to die with regret by my side

The Dreams of a child
Are shattered like glass on the floor
Covered in blood the reflection broken
Hopeless and downtrodden
Living a life so desolate
I watch as time fades
And all that I loved is gone

Can you help me find release
Nothing can bring me peace
Forsaken from the beginning
Destined for Failure
No repentance for my sins
Satin stalks with a grin
Wandering through the night
Searching for the light

Is life as hopeless as it seems
Is there no solace for me
When I am in dissention with myself
Is there no hope for me
Existence is my disease
An illness beyond compare
In this world I am ensnared
Track Name: Disseverance
Instrumental
