Sonipath - _Heavy Hooks_
(Flatten'Em Records, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
There is just something really intriguing about the music of Sonipath. I mean the music here is not as deafening or violent as Slayer or as intricate playing as Carcass, but the sheer ability of the band to mold funk, metal and aggressive rock deserves an applause. One thing the listener will pick up right away is the band's very raw feel to the material, nothing sugar-coated, just assembled as it was recorded and that does help create a character about the music. The seven-song outing covers topics ranging from the internet ("WWW.") to media coverage "Newswoman") and illegal bars ("Club Seal"), with singer D.J. Moran keeping the flow of the music going onto each song. Another thing I liked was that the band, to some extent, makes the music seem simplistic at times when in reality it is not. Great musicians and songwriters make up this New York five-piece and the more you hear this you really pick that up. For those that want to taste a bit of what heavily charged and diverse material should sound like, then check out Sonipath.
