In 1999 the mini-disc “Shamelessly Dressed” was released, which showed the group has developed in a versatile way. After the release of this second album, the name ‘Casual Silence’ often appears in the pop and rock magazines and the band became a well known name in the regional rock scène. At the end of the year 2000, keyboard player David Natali was replaced by Henry Meeuws (known from his solo project MEDEA). In this period the band worked hard on writing new material. At the beginning of 2003 the band released her new album “Once In a Blue Moon”. By the compositions on this album you can hear the band has strongly developed in every way.
This manifests itself in praise worthy reviews in the media and a lot of gigs with famous acts like: Tony MacAlpine & Virgil Donati, Epica, Focus, Alquin, Kayak, Jadis, Landmarq, The Watch, Pain of Salvation and Saga. Casual Silence is a band you really have to experience live, that proves the DVD “Live at Plato” (CD presentation of ‘Once in a Blue Moon’) released at the end of 2003. Now…almost 4 years after her last studio album, the musicians of Casual Silence reward the patience of their fans with a strong brand new concept album: “Lost In Life”. For this 4th album, the band has co-operated with Sandra Peeters (V-Male) and no one less than the unique English vocalist Damian Wilson. It has become an album with 8 masterpieces of symphonic, progressive and catchy songs.
If you read the lyrics you’ll find out that the band members found to their cost what ‘Lost in Life’ really means. The atmosphere the CD breathes is stirring and oppressive at the same time. That’s why ‘Lost in Life’ is something new of great class. Casual Silence is back …and heavier than ever! CASUAL SILENCE: Ernst le Cocq (guitar, voc.) Henry Meeuws (keys, guitar) Rob Laarhoven (voc.)
