Silentium  


"Gothic" is a style that seemingly was invented in Finland, but while Silentium is undeniably a gothic metal band, they are of the symphonic gothic metal variety, not the goth rock style headed by H.I.M. and other Finnish bands of that ilk. The band debuted in 1999 with the ambitiously-titled Infinita Plango Vulnera, followed by Altum two years later and most recently their best release to date, Sufferion - Hamartia Of Prudence. A true concept album (half of the "songs" are actually spoken interludes that carry forward the story, a romantic tale set in 1787), Sufferion contains many of the staples of the gothic metal genre (a variety of vocal styles, violins, theatrical arrangements), yet succeeds in rising above the competition with its rich diversity and flawless execution. Truly an impressive effort.
