SILENTLIE - EQUILIBRIUM


#review


BAND SILENTLIE

ALBUM EQUILIBRIUM

LABEL Rockshots Records

OUT Sept 30th, 2022

OUR RATING 80/100

Italian melancholic Hm band SilentLie are ready to unleash sophomore full-length "Equilibrium" due out September 10th, 2022 via Rockshots Records to follow 2015's "Layers of Nothing".

"Equilibrium" was mixed in the U.S.A. by Grammy Award winner Dave Hagen at Dark Horse Studios (Mastodon, Evanescence, Alice in Chains)

The new platter provides a contemporary heavy sound wrapped in a gloomy setting, with a wall of sound

on which the guitars move themselves helped by keys and a powerful female voice, a real added value.

Many of the songs on the album, thematically, deal with the eternal struggle between good and evil, with lyrics introspective and personal.

"Our first EP, "Blood Under Snow" was a collection of five obscure and atmospheric tracks, while our first full-length "Layers of Nothing" featured dark/gothic influences with some old-fashioned Sabbath riffing. The new material on 'Equilibrium" reveals a more focused sound with a blasting production. It's deep, heavy, and gritty with a dark outline. It's a collection of 10 heavy songs, a journey in the dark without fear.", adds the band.

They start with DIVIDED, a great example of modern dark metal exalted by amazing female vocals and keyboards, followed by ON MY SKIN that started again with keys, reminding some influences from DEATH SS in the first slice.

The song grows second after second and every member occupies its own space with the right attitude.

You’ll appreciate squared SOMETHING TO REMEMBER and following TASTE OF SOLITUDE.

One of our favorite is the title-track and HYSTERIA, clear signs of the growth of their sound.

Not least MODERN PARADOX and more clear THE OTHERS, before WORLD UPSIDE DOWN ends in the best way a great album.
