I, like many people, only heard about this band because of the lead singer Jonny Santos. I was and still am a big fan of his previous band Spineshank. However, as you've proably already read, this band on a completely different area of the musical spectrum. If you are looking for Spineshank 2 you should go elsewhere. Or if everything so far means nothing to you don't let it keep you from missing out on a great band.

Silent Civilian are basically 3 guys (4 at the time of the record's recording) who are looking lay down some great metal and inject a little of their world viewpoint into it, all for our enjoyment. Rebirth of the Temple manages to combine the best of the old-school metal flare with contemporary rawness and aggression. Some may say, "Well, thats been done before." Yesh but not at the level Silent Civilian achieves. Solos and Double-Bass abound this guys play riffs so technical and so unrelenting that almost makes one tired trying keep up with everything.

On top of all this superb musicianship Santos' vocals keep the listener on their toes as he switches flawlessly from screaming to singing then back again. Yes, this too has been done before. However, Santos benefits from being as intelligible when he's screaming as when he's singing. IMO this gives Silent Civilian an edge over many other bands whose vocals sound like a constant barking or even, in some cases, belching. So, since you can understand Santos: is he saying anything worth hearing? Not really... Most of the song's messages directed at George "dubya" or simply about the state of the world and politics at the time. If you have a passion for the subject matter it might be a plus but for the rest of us it's the same gift in a different package.

This is an amazing album. I was extremely sad when i found out Jonny Santos left Spineshank. I didn't think Silent Civilian would be anywhere near as good as Spineshank was either, even after hearing tracks from the internet. But now that it has been finally released, it has become difficult to find words for how great this album is. This album is over an hour long and almost every song is amazing, this is not an album with fillers. I haven't heard a great album like this since Trivium's "Ascendancy". Silent Civilain are different from spineshank because they are metalcore yet there are a few tracks that remind you of Spineshank. Specifically i thought the tracks "wrath", "force fed", and "blood red sky" sounded alot like spineshank but "blood red sky" was removed from the album and replaced with the the song "first amendment" on the actual album. I noticed this after purchasing the actual album. My favorite tracks include "wrath", "rebirth of the temple", and "live again".

Back in the day I was a huge fan of spineshank. Since than my tastes have evolved a little, and I don't listen to them much, but when I heard about this band I thought hey why not? In the end Silent Civilan is laced with a lot of potential but lacks a lot of punch. Simply put this is about the most generic metalcore you could find. Nothing particularly special except for having that classic spineshank screamer at the helm. I'm sure with a little maturity these guys can refine their sound, but as it stands this album went straight to the back of the case, maybe when I'm in the mood for some Rc cola.

First off I was a huge Spineshank fan but what Silent Civilian brings to the table is more than anything I expected. This is a straight forward metal cd. Lots of double bass and awesome guitar work similar to that of Trivium or even Killswitch Engage. One of my favorite things about this cd is the long songs, many of which are for 6 minutes long or more which kinda reminds me of Metallica a little or of course Trivium. Vocals are close to what Jonny did on Spineshank but thats really about it. This is definitely a band that metalheads need to know of. Seriously if your a fan of Trivium,Killswitch Engage or even something like Soilwork or old Metallica then get this cd right away. You wont be dissapointed. The only thing I wish was on this cd was the track "Blood red sky". Great song that for some reason was deleted off the album. No big deal though the cd is amazing. Get it now

I was a big fan of Spineshank and when I heard that Jonny Santos was leaving for Silent Civilian I knew that they had to be great. The two bands are of very different styles, Spineshank's music being filled with more techno like beats and sounds while Silent Civilian is straight up metalcore with screamed vocals and most songs having a melodic chorus.

Although the songs get kinda repetitive (thus the 4 stars) everything else they have done is awesome. I see their next album being one of the greats in this genre. Although some people might not like their very political message in most of their songs. My favorites on this album are: Bitter Pill, Blood Red Sky, Force Fed, Live Again, and The Song Remains Unnamed.

If you like melodic metalcore with a real message instead of just words then Silent Civilian is for you.
