Soma is a Queens-based quintet whose five-track release treads the emo-tinged hard rock waters inhabited by bands like Glassjaw, Thursday, and Deftones. Armed with a slew of good ideas and a good sense of direction, when these guys get all screamy on tracks like "Nothing is a Tragedy" they are most effective, yet they could use a metronome and a little more polish instrumentally to make it a more cohesive affair. Nonetheless, Soma displays an ample amount of angst to keep an eye out for their next batch of tunes.
