|Art by Shannon Poehlman|
Sioum was recommended by Cloudkicker after downloading his fantastic album Beacons. Those recommendations can be a hit and miss affair, but I Am Mortal, But Was Fiend was definitely a hit! Later I read an interview with Sioum where they said "The three of us really love his music. We feel we could get an awesome sound going if we worked together". And that makes a lot of sense when you hear their music.
Check out this well written review from Sputnikmusic. Currently Sioum is focusing on writing music and promoting, because their drummer Arthur Zdrinc was diagnosed with tennis elbow. Here's to a speedy recovery for Arthur, and maybe this means we get to hear new music from them in the near future.
