Age Of Silence
Age Of Silence features some of Norway's finest,
many well known from other bands, coming together
to produce some ambitious progressive/avant-garde
This is a band that is very much a sum of its parts --
(the calmer parts)
into a blender and Age Of Silence might be the end result,
with Winds being perhaps the closest soundalike of
Lars Nedland continues to be one of the most distinctive
vocalists in metal, always lending an air of class to the
proceedings, and Andy Winter's pianos play an important
role here, just as they do in Winds.
And of course workaholic drummer Hellhammer puts in
another reliably fine percussive performance -- would
anyone expect anything less from him?
Lyrically, well, the titles indicate that there's a lot going
on, arguably a tad pretentious perhaps, but certainly a
welcome change from the usual mundane subjects.
Since the majority of the members here play in a primary
band elsewhere, Age Of Silence has been on the back burner for some time,
but as of this writing, a new album has been in works for quite awhile
and may yet see the light of day.
