Cry For Silence - The Glorious Dead

CFS rip through this eleven track album like Krueger at a brownies gathering, burnished hardcore passions with twin melodic axe work punctuated with some ferocious riffery whilst vocalist pettit gives his all with some well timed choking passion that has been honed tight to the melodies producing some outstanding metal.

The album opens with 'Nightmare' and in five minutes displays the bands talents reproducing everything in one outstanding track with melodic woven solo's to pummelling riffery in an anthem of metal that is going to be a fans favourite for many a long year.

Next up is 'A World Benign' and straight into a great riff that is good enough to hold up the song on its own and no sooner has it wound up does it finish before we launch into the third song Sipario with its metal hardcore pedigree but somehow CFS manage to layer some interesting solo style riffs and as I listen to track after track I realise that the band have forged a sound that uniquely incorperates the passions of hardcore with the melodies of traditional metal and the burbling riffery of post metal each style merged to good effect.

This is outstandingly reproduced in the title track 'Glorious Dead' and the following track in 'Cold Unholy Shores', it doesnt finish there because we are only halfway through, in fact the album provides approx forty five minutes of metal for your money. Tracks seven and eight show that the band have some progressive
tendancies before we return to the blistering sound that has proven to be so captivating
in the the first half of this debut album the final three songs wind up to the mega 'The Weight Of Fear' which I found is the perfect song to lead into 'Nightmare' as like me, I am sure you will leave the CD on repeat.

Cry For Silence are playing a modern sound from the edge and leading the charge back to true metal.
