Bio

Our name is SŌMA, and as a band we represent a rebirth of the visceral—a return to the flesh, or as our name may dictate (if one were to use its direct Greek translation), a return to the body. Our vitriolic music and histrionic performance work in tandem to produce a unique cultural artifact. We worship at the shrine of human violence, so to speak. Beginning humbly as a studio project based out of Berklee college of music between vocalist Théo Chaouat and guitarist/producer Joel Kent, the band quickly expanded to include drummer Steven Viol and bassist Ron Bernhaut. A formidable chemistry was born between these musicians as we honed our craft under the tutelage of renowned Berklee bass faculty member and hardcore music maestro and connoisseur David Marvuglio (formerly of Ice Nine Kills). Since beginning our live debut, we have been instilled with a hunger, a voracity that will not reach satiety until we have said our piece before those whom we wish to address. We tackle contentious and controversial geopolitical topics such as war, famine, racism, sexism, xenophobia, income inequality, and global warming, and we will stop at nothing, uncompromisingly using our platform to speak out against the injustice that we see, and to fight violence with the primally cathartic sense of intrinsic justice that our anarchic outcry invokes. Since our inception, we’ve added guitarist Shepard Saied and replaced Steven Viol with drummer Chris Savarino. We are perfecting upcoming material at present, and planning a debut EP; our three singles “Gold Standard,” “Sphynx,” and “Orpheus,” are available on all music streaming platforms in the meantime.
