Within Silence are very happy to announce that their new album “Return From The Shadows” will be released in Japan through Rubicon Music on January 31st! The Japanese edition will include the bonus track ‘Master’ (Orchestral Version).

The band states: “Thanks for your support everyone!”

Their new album “Return From The Shadows” has been released on October 27th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records.

“Return From The Shadows” is a perfect follow-up to the debut album “Gallery of Life” and feels like a more mature and focused album. The impressive song-writing and melodies are still there, and together with heavy riffs, symphonic arrangements and epic parts the result is a really strong album. Continue reading »

As a concert organization you do not have everything in your own hand. It’s very annoying, especially so short for time: but Brainstorm Festival just received the following message:

“We regret to inform you that Within Silence is not able to play Brainstorm Festival 2017. Due to a voice-sickness of lead vocalist Martin Klein the band has to cancel their performance on doctors advice. Martin worked really hard during the past week to get better as he and the band really wanted to make it work, but unfortunately the recovery didn’t go fast enough. Within Silence are very sorry about this, and hopes to return to The Netherlands during 2018 to present their new album ‘Return From The Shadows’ to you.

“The fact that losing Within Silence has consequences for our programming on Friday night may be clear. We are considering a suitable solution, knowing that the limited remaining time is not in our favor. We hope for your understanding for this. Continue reading »

Within Silence return with their sophomore album Return from the Shadows, an effort that will not disappoint fans of their debut Gallery of Life and is sure to bring in new fans to their ranks.

Without looking it up, my first thought was that Within Silence was likely a Swedish band given the strength of the performances and overall style but after looking around, it appears they are actually from Kosice, Slovakia.  Their first album in 2015 was released on Ulterium records and Gallery of Life was strong enough to get them slots in festivals across Europe and as support for Theocracy. For Return from the Shadows, the band had used some well known talent to the power metal scene with Roland Grapow (Masterplan, Helloween) for mixing and mastering and artwork from Jan Yrlund (Delain, Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani).

Sometimes the opening song can not only make or break an album but also allows the listener to know whether or not the rest of the album will be worthy of a listen.  Such is the case with Return from the Shadows.  “We are the Ones” just explodes into a driving rhythm with some good layered guitar over the top and quickly gets into the verse section showcasing Martin Klein’s smooth, somewhat dark vocals.  Fast, European power metal with a driving low end, cool riffs and vocals that alternate from quieter to soaring, channeling aspects of Bruce Dickinson at times.  Add in some guitar solos that fit well within the structure of the song and the album is off to a great start.  At this point, it is very clear this album was very well done both in production and performances and songwriting…and that’s after the first song.
