Profile
Sonus Umbra is a band originally formed in Mexico City under the name Radio Silence by Andres Aullet, Ricardo Gómez, and Luis Nasser. After playing for a few years in Mexico, Gómez and Nasser relocated to the US, eventually reforming the band and taking on American member Jeff Laramee (of Kurgan's Bane, a band that also featured Nasser). Activity continued sporadically for a number of years, and from 2013 onward, Nasser has convened a version of the band with all new members.
