Editorial Reviews

VIOLENT SILENCE is without any doubt one of the absolute best Swedish newcommers in the Progressive rock genre ! The band issued its first eponymous album in the year 2003 on the Record Heaven label (And Musea outside of Scandinavia). Very hard to compare with anything else, it might be heard as a subtle mix between LANDBERK, ECHOLYN and SYLVAN… But without guitar ! The reason why the six-strings parts aren't missed at all is that the musicians do a stunning job ! Hannes LJUNGHALL's keyboards parts are logically in the forefront, as is the rythmic section led by Johan HEDMAN (Drums) and Phillip BASTIN (Bass). Singer Bruno EDLING displays excellent vocal lines, and well-crafted lyrics. Together, they found a way to unite nordic melancholia and anglo-saxon power: what an incredible challenge ! Not to be missed…

If you like stuff like The Mars Volta, Bjork, Yes, Faith No More and Depeche Mode then go buy this album. It's been glued to my stereo for over a week now and it only gets better and better. Easily one of the best cd's I've heard this year.

Think Discipline era King Crimson without guitars but with keyboards instead. Still there is another essential difference between the two. V.S.'s compositional skills are sorely lacking. There is little sense of melody within any of the tracks. There is also a sameness in structure and sound that after a while sounds monotonous and fails to hold one's interest. The keyboardist, bassist and drummer all have their strengths but as the songs lack direction they just never really go anywhere. The vocalist would be an aquired taste, if at all. Pass on this outfit and go instead to another Swedish band, The Flower Kings....Simon
