Zohamah is an intentionally cryptic band from Israel. Its name is taken from the Kabbalah, and it translates to “darkness” or “pollution.” The act plays a combination of Black/Death/Doom music.

Well here we go again…sigh…another album that does what it says, but does nothing for me at all. Ok, I did like the music, just not the vocals, not at all. You can tell that Menashe has talent, playing everything himself, but I just can’t get into these kinds of vocals.

Great playing, short songs, and creepy sounds to scare the neighbours. Give it a listen if you are into this kind of music.
