5.0 out of 5 stars "The icy chill of death..." February 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
From what I know, Spiritual Vertigo is Sonus Umbra's third studio release, though I've never heard their first one. However, having listened to both Snapshots from Limbo and Spiritual Vertigo hundreds of times, I can assure you that this band can do wrong. They're an amazingly talented bunch of musicians led by multi-instrumentalist Luis Nasser whose main instrument is the bass. Nasser started out his band back in his homeland Mexico before he moved to the USA. I believe Spiritual Vertigo was written in America, whilst the first two discs came out in Mexico as independent releases.

Sonus Umbra is a very dark progressive rock band with thought-provoking lyrics, great melodies, excellent male vocals with occasional female back-ups, a thundering rhythm section and the indescribable bass playing of Luis Nasser. I am absolutely impressed with Nasser's bass guitar playing and I have to point out that I've never heard another band whose music revolves around the bass like this. It's not the technicality or complexity in Nasser's phrasing that I admire, but moreso his tone, articulation and feel. His subtle rhythmic patterns abound the compositions like the rhythm of an irregular heart beat and draw your attention immediately. Nasser also plays acoustic and electric guitars as well as keyboards. He's also the primary songwriter and lyricist of Sonus Umbra. Vocalist Andre Aullet possesses a midrange, clear melodic voice that marks the songs with depth and emotion throughout. There is also Ricardo Gomez on lead guitars, though not in overabundance, and Gomez plays great melodies that embellish the tunes without detracting from them. I am familiar with drummer Jeff Laramee from his own band, Kurgan's Bane, who are in a similar musical vein with Sonus Umbra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! This one is great ....... December 31, 2009
By J. Hort
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this about 3years ago and dismissed it, mostly my fault looking for the next thing but not really listening.

Spiritual Vertigo is a hidden treasure of excellent prog by it's own right.

No regrets..... this will satisfy any music lover.
