Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Silent Wedding. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify I really liked their energetic sound.
As soon as I hit the play button I immediately realized that I was in front of some great musicians.
The sound of this band is epic, powerful, and direct and hits you like a punch in the face. The attention to every detail is maniacal and the chord progression of these songs is never predictable and banal and manages to entertain the listener from the first to the last second with continuous rhythmic and harmonic variations.
In some moments the singer’s voice reminded me of Serj Tankian from System of a Down. It feels like these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve this enviable musical understanding.
The new album Ego Path by The Silent Wedding is a mature work that follows a very coherent thread and all the tunes are very well thought out.
Honestly, I found no flaws in terms of production, recording, and performance of the musicians.
A band to keep under the radar as they produce quality music.
Ego Path is The Silent Wedding’s Album Out Now!
Mature and Powerful!
The Silent Wedding is a heavy metal band, formed in 2008 by releasing their first self-titled EP, with the reviewers describing The Silent Wedding as a “Heavy Metal band with Prog & Power influences”. Their first full length album “Livin Experiments” was released in 2013, mastered by Michael “Miro” Rodenberg (Kamelot, Edguy, Rhapsody etc.) at Gate Studios (De). For the album’s artwork, the band worked with Travis Smith (Nevermore, Iced Earth, Opeth etc).
Meanwhile, the band keeps promoting its work through live shows around Greece & Europe in metal festivals, sharing the stage with bands like Saxon, Fates Warning, Firewind, Tygers of Pan Tang, Maiden United, Caravan, Lizzy Borden and many more. The Silent Wedding supported Maiden United in two mini-tours in the Netherlands & Belgium, joined Voodoo Six in their European mini-tour in 2014 and supported Threshold in their “European Journey” Tour for 19 shows around Europe.
In March 2017 the band released “Enigma Eternal”, an album that received remarkable feedback, from fans and press, featuring guest vocals by Tom S. Englund, vocalist of the mighty Evergrey. The artwork was once again a creation of Travis Smith inspired by the album’s ominous concept.
“The vibe of Kamelot and the artistic approach of Evergrey combined with a reminiscence of Savatage! Impressive album!” (Metal Hammer – 9/10)
Many successful shows followed, with the band sharing the stage with Iced Earth, Epica, Annihilator, Warrel Dane (Nevermore), touring over Europe once more with the UK progsters Threshold.
The band entered the studio in 2020 and started working on new material and completed the recordings of their new album entitled “Ego Path” in 2021. “Ego Path” was introduced to the public on Dec. 17th, 2021 with the release of the single “Time of Darkness”, whilst the 2nd track of the album with title “Caught in the Web” was released on the 28 of Jan. 2022.
“Ego Path” was released in its entirety on February 11, 2022 and has already received stunning reviews from press in all over the world.
