Soul Enema - Of Clans And Clones And Clowns (2017)

The second album from this band from Israel.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, guitars, sitar, violin, keyboards, programming and vocals.

Some guest musicians, including Yossi Sassi and Arjen Lucassen, contributed with flutes, guitars, bouzoukitara, bass, child scream (!) and vocals.

Their 2010 debut album Thin Ice Crawling was a good album somewhere between female fronted neo-prog and goth metal. I was therefore happy to discover this album although it did not come up for review before now.

The music on this seventy-two minutes long album is a mix of neo-prog, a bit goth metal, a lot of Middle East folk rock and some pop music. 

The vocals are of the female variety and they are good.

The sound is good too and the guitars does a good job. There is a bit more goth metal here than I like. But there is not much of goth metal.... but any goth metal is too much goth metal.

The quality is good throughout although I wish it could have been better. 

I hope we will hear more from this band and/or members of this band.
