Without big promotion in 2004 they released Seven Tears and got excellent reviews from music magazines. In spring they founded their own record label Plainsong Records and immediately began to work on their fourth album, Elegy, which was released on October 25, 2004. Yuki Melchert (violin) and Anika Skusa (cello) had guest appearances. On January 30, 2006 Saviourine was released in Germany, and also in almost all of Central and Eastern Europe. On April 20, 2007 the sixth album Aphelia was released.

Just 15 months after “Saviourine” the hard working Germans release their sixth work so far.
Scream Silence never looked back to their own created horizons. More and more months of creative work they invested at their label-own Plainsong Studio to build their own musical microcosm and to extend the borders with every of the following four records as well. “Aphelia”, a word from Greek mythology for the farthest point from the sun, ignites a firework of excellent songs, which are discharging in inexhaustible passion straight into the listener. At first sight "Aphelia" seems to be rawer than its predecessors.
The songs from the new material not only have the band-typical catchy melodies but also much more alternative- or progressive elements. Club-fitting uptempo singles like “Kerosene” or “The Vitriol”, gloomy gothic rock songs as “Harvest” and “In Every Sin” or dark rock hymns like “Nothingness” and “Unspoken” and even the dearly beloved epic ballads “My Eyes” and finally the 10-minute title track “Aphelia” melt into a harmonic concept album of eternal beauty. The extensive designed artwork of the multiple folding DigiPak cover explains the meaning of the lyrical work. “Aphelia”, a small girl, here the symbol for the fragility of the human soul, strolls between unreal worlds she never belongs to and finally finds her only home world in the darkest of all places – herself. The limited first edition of the album comes with additional Bonus-Live-Tracks, long awaited by every fan, recorded in December 2006 at the biggest dark music hall in Berlin, the K17.
Scream Silence leave on “Aphelia” an impressive aura of sound fulfilled with songs of remaining beauty and so far unheard lyrical deepness. The warmest sounds from the coldest sun-farthest place Scream Silence have ever created….. APHELIA – APRIL 2007 Source: Plainsong Records Read more on Last.fm.
