A raw doom/death band with slow riffage and a bleak atmosphere. Borders on being funeral doom at times. Utterly negative feeling....

Unsilence : A Walk Through Oceans

Unsilence is a band that was never in the centre of attention. They have been releasing music for several years now and have never gained any large-scale recognition in the doom scene. I'd say this is very undeserved, as they have found a good style of their own through the years.

'A Walk Through Oceans' is an mCD with four great tracks that will appeal to a wide doom audience. The five Englishmen play melodic doom/death with excellent clean vocals by singer Andrew Hodson. Only once, at the end of the last song, does the characteristic death grunt rear its head.

The songs consist mostly of interchanging melodic and heavy riffs, with the odd guitar solo thrown in. The first few spins it all doesn't sound very original, but the feeling passes as the four songs sink a bit deeper into your brain. You come to respect the brilliant parts on the album (especially the great ending of 'The Unknown') for what they are.

All in all, this is a good release from a band that deserves more attention, even if the doom/death genre is a bit saturated. Highly recommended for any doom/death fan and fans of Mourning Beloveth in particular.
