The drums contribute to the oriental presentation as well, but mostly as backup during the slower distorted or acoustic parts of "KA BA ACH". The clearest Egyptian themes are in the use of oriental instruments, and of course the guitars. Especially the acoustic sections have a very eastern feeling, but also progress to more Jazz-like musical structures. The distorted riffs however lack a certain part of this Egyptian atmosphere, although sometimes they do carry on the spirit of the acoustics. What works both as a negative and positive element is the use of grunts during the songs: on one hand it adds to the diversity, on the other hand it makes the identity of FORGOTTEN SILENCE very two-faced.
When the electric guitars lack the oriental spirit, and the grunts do as well, then it's a rather big step to go from a Death Metal section to a very eastern-sounding passage all of a sudden. Independent label Epidemie has released their experimental oriental-ambient-sounding alike album "BYA BAMAHE NEEM" as well as their debut recording from 1994 "THE NAMELESS FOREVER... (remastered demo)" - both includes interactive CD-section. Their "KRO NI KA" album was released in 2006. Its sound is more into prog rock/metal veins.
Released as classical jewel-box and luxurious digipak. Digipak version of "THOTS (remastered edition)" is out right now - throughout Obscene Prod.
