“A Funeral for the World” is the debut album from New York band Sanhedrin. It was originally self-released by the band during 2017, but Sanhedrin have now been signed to Cruz Del Sur Music and the album was released by the label on 27th April. I included the album’s opening track “Riding on the Dawn” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 4th May.


 

Sanhedrin has quite a distinct sound. There are big doom / stoner influences but it’s mixed with classic rock and metal vibes. However you want to label it, there is something in the Sanhedrin sound that instantly appealed to me.


Sanhedrin formed in Brooklyn in 2014 and features Erica Stoltz on lead vocals and bass, Jeremy Sosville on guitar and Nathan Honor on drums. A demo was released in 2015 ahead of the band self-releasing their debut album in 2017.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!
