2012 release, the fourth album from the Canadian Pop/Punk quartet. The band began life as Pezz, releasing one album in the '90s before changing their name in 2001 to Billy Talent and finally landing a record contract. The band has gone on to achieve an enormous amount of success with their first three albums, both in their native country and in Europe.

But this album, it's just got so much energy, all the songs are catchy, and I can't stop listening to it. Like usual BT, the lyrics are quite insightful and well-written. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD, you will not regret it.
Now, if you've somehow missed Billy Talent over the past ten years, it's not really your fault if you live in the U.S.. BT doesn't neatly fit into the corporate rock niche that the labels and radio stations want to promote. So surprise, surprise (cue track 3 on Dead Silence), sometimes you have to really dig to find the (music) gems. Once you've sampled a few tracks from Billy Talent's new album you'll know you're onto something.
Dead Silence is not a departure from the sound and feeling of the three previous studio releases, it is more an evolution from those. It truly feels like a concept album that somehow manages to take varying styles and themes and meld them together with that signature, addicting Billy Talent sound. There are no "throwaway" tracks- every one gets the band's full effort in songwriting, energy, and production.
The guys in BT have been together for 20 years as a band, and with Dead Silence they've once again proven they have lost none of their passion for the music.
Two weeks later Billy Talent was one of my favorite bands. The next album, III, was not bad, but Dead Silence brings them back at the top for me. I am 54 years old and not too many new bands really grab my attention, yet alone keep me hooked for a decade. This album rocks well and I look forward to their next offering. Keep 'em coming Billy Talent!
