Sonne Adam
Style: Death/Doom Metal
Release date: 4 April, 2011
Playing time: 41:44

This band hails from Israel and although there are not a lot metal bands from that country, the quality of those we know is always high. Sonne Adam (hate humanity in Hebrew) isn't an exception. With only 2 members, Davidov (all instruments) and Dahan (vocals) this band made quite an impression on me.

You can describe their style as a mix between Paradise Lost (Lost Paradise, Gothic) and Morbid Angel. It all has an evil sound and sometimes the music is rather slow, but when they pick up the tempo, the technical Morbid Angel style appears. The sound of the down tuned guitars and the singing style is definitely early Paradise Lost, but it never sounds like a copy. That is because they sound more technical and add more speed at times. I could tell you some facts about how the several songs are like, but that would not add a lot to this review.

If you like a more technical Paradise Lost, you have to check this out! Most impressive track: "Transformation".
