No rules, awesome playing, new melodies, fresh thinking, and even a slightly cynical yet humorous message.

This reminds me of some of the more creative bands of the mid 70s. This is a more cohesive production than Winds, which most of the members were participants in. I hope this is not a 1 shot deal with this band/concept. I want more....

If you like creative music, that has no pre conceived notions (Event, Mars Volta, Mid 80s Crimson, etc) then you will certainly love this from the first listen.

Acceleration is a pretty good album that begins better than it ends. When "Auditorium of Modern Movement" blasts out of your speakers, the intro of the song teases you into believing that you're about to indulge in some amazing avant-garde. Unfortunately, as the song progresses past the intro, it loses a bit of it's edge. The song was still pretty awesome though, so no dissapointment yet, then it's on to track two. Track two is also a pleasant listen, and you find yourself tapping your foot to a certain catchy piano melody. At this point, you've made up your mind that this is a good CD, but something is still missing. You realize this album could have used

Better production - Sure, you can hear everything clearly. But if the sound was fuller, more ambient, more atmospheric, sonic, dynamic and lush--this album would have been a knockout. Every instrument on this album, including the vocals, sounds cheap and synthetic. It's a metal album with the dynamics of techno music, in other words. Of course, for some, that could be a good thing.

Expanded songs - This album gets a bit noisy from time to time, the ideas, while great, aren't expanded enough for maximum flow, length, and feel to their music.

But make no mistake, this is a good album. It's creative, unique, and if you love Lars Nedland--it's a must. Hellhammer fans maybe a bit dissapointed. If you want to hear some good Hellhammer drumming, Sham Mirrors by Arcturus is the path to which you must take.

As a fan of bands like Arcturus, Opeth, Frantic Bleep, Winds, ect this is my view on Age of Silence's debut, "Acceleration".

Adios!

So my order from The End records finally came in and I can proudly say it was worth the wait. The debut of Age of Silence, a side project of a side project, is titled "Acceleration". The guitarwork is simple yet effective. It is primarily used as the rhythmic instrument although you will hear maybe a few melodies being played over the course of the album. The keyboards of Andy Winter (Winds) act as the lead instrument and work well off of the crunchy guitar rhythms. Drumming: It's Hellhammer, what else can I say ;-) . His double bass tricks never fail to amaze me. In the vocal department is where AoS excels most. Lazarre's voice is beautiful, original, and overall just "fresh". The lyrics are a puzzling concept. There are references to "D Inc." and "P+S" in more than one song, but it's hard to figure out what the concept of the album really is. There are multiple references to "concrete" and "invoices" which gives the impression the concept is something about the hell of the modern world, but I'd like to hear other people's opinions on this. Even though the lyrics may sound mundane, the presentation is rather poetic. The most beautiful track by far is "90 (degree) Angles". "A Song for D. Incorporated" is also one of the most prominently good songs on the album. There is only one "bad" song, and that is "I No Longer Know If I Am Mad" because the spoken words on it are annoying. Thankfully it's only two minutes or so. With members of Winds and Borknagar playing, it's no wonder that this album is, well, good!.

This is Avant Garde metal at it's finest. A must have for metal fans who enjoy well composed songs. I actually bought it because I collect cd's with Hellhammer on drums. I listen to this cd more than Mayhem and Arcturus combined.

Acceleration is one of the most listened to album I own. I love it! Well, I'm a Andy Winter fan and a HUGE Hellhammer fan. He's my favorite drummer.

Okay, I own all the Winds albums and their amazing but when I got Acceleration in the mail I'm starting to like it more than Winds...I mean they have Three members (plus one former member) from Winds in Age Of Silence. All the members in this band line-up are allstars as well. The metal Underground is all a web...

Back to this album. It's brilliant. If you like your music Intricate and Innovating and catchy as a motherfu*ker...Then buy this...But, look'em up first..There on myspace...for two songs and another profile (Unofficial) has three on theirs so check them out first...But I Think You'll dig'em!

Peace
