IN THE SILENCE tonight kicks off their tour with statemates SECRETS OF THE SKY, beginning on ITS’ turf in Sacramento and rolling across the West Coast for a week after, before coming to a close in SOTS’ hometown of Oakland on October 12th.
Decibel Magazine today hosts an exclusive feature with IN THE SILENCE alongside a full stream of their A Fair Dream Gone Mad full-length RIGHT HERE, and last week they did the same with SECRETS OF THE SKY and their To Sail Black Waters debut, playing HERE.
New Jersey based progressive label Sensory Records released the debut full-length from IN THE SILENCE, A Fair Dream Gone Mad, in May of this year, following the band’s own self-released version which they sold out of twice before joining Sensory. With incredibly moving riffs and otherworldly atmospheres, boasting a huge mid-tone clean vocal performance atop a thunderous display of technical metal percussion, A Fair Dream Gone Mad’s forty-five minute lifespan possesses massive, pristine production, further magnifying the IN THE SILENCE’s skilled approach. Since the release of the album the band expanded their lineup to a quintet and will now bring this more amplified and expansive lineup to the live setting.
Projecting a unique brand of cinematic, cerebral, atmospheric metal with a persuasion towards doom and black metal, on To Sail Black Waters, three of SECRETS OF THE SKY’s six-member lineup each make contributions with multiple instruments, layering synth/keys, violins and an array of vocal styles atop the crushing rhythm section and massive triple guitar attack. The resulting forty-one minute opus is the outcome of a massive spread-out eight month period of recording sessions at Trident Studios with engineer/producer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation). Italian metal label Kolony Records will release SECRETS OF THE SKY’s anticipated debut album, To Sail Black Waters, in North America this Tuesday, October 8th.
