Somnia for insomnia.
Laika is a melodic death metal band from Canada that didn’t realized that there is a much more famous band with the same name, but you know how kiddos are… always trying to impress.
Their promo photo says their influence: Black Dahlia Murder and Suicide Silence (bands that I loathe) and one of the guys are wearing Judas Priest tee (Sin after Sin) which is a sin per se.
The songs are well executed and AGAIN the production is on spot, but for what? Everything here sounds brainless and made only for the show. There’s no real music inside, just riffs, drumming, but no music. There’s no highlight as all the songs sound the same.
The word somnia in Latin means sleep. It’s explained. If you have insomnia, Laika is better than Clonazepam.
Somnia is out now on Filth Regime Records
