Sonus Umbra is one of those bands donating all of their money to the Red Cross
relief fund. Here are some reviews:
The Progressive Pages:
"A handful of words come to mind when thinking of the music on this album:
bright, dynamic, brilliant, vibrant, enthralling. The acoustic guitar passages,
a mix of different styles but with a definite Spanish/flamenco influence, are
easily the best I've ever heard on a prog rock album."

"The band's music is built on a moody, brooding intensity. Analog keys form the
backbone, with a lot of acoustic and classical guitar adding the colour. At
times I'm reminded of the more atmospheric German bands from the 70s, combined
with some of the solemn textures of Timothy Pure (AKA early Pink Floyd). The
melodies and song writing is absolutely superb, with a soft, yet melancholy
Gothic tone throughout."
