Silence of September
Silence of September
After several replacements, founders Niko (lead vocals/guitars/keys) and Mirza (guitars/backing vocals) finally managed to ensemble the strong line up that is to be found today. Niko, Mirza, Kim and Frederik together give life to a sound that is addictive, powerful and undeniably gripping. Silence of September are being compared to acts like Linkin Park, Deftones and 30 Seconds to Mars and the album has also been appointed to one of the best albums to come out of Denmark in several years. "...you'll have to be deaf to not appreciate the great melodies found in songs like "Make A Scene", "I Have A Dream" and many others on the record...".
(Rockfreaks.net) "...an album that has exceeded all expectations the scene could possibly have had for these guys...". (Rockfreaks.net) "...most of the songs work with fine arrangements and well-written choruses. There are promising aspects within this debut...". (Gaffa.dk) Early September 2011, after two national tours (donating all the profits to charity), radio airplay, two self-made music-videos and many gigs later, “Sleep of Reason” was released worldwide (instead of Scandinavia) through Warner Music, once again proving Silence of September to be one of the hardest working bands on the up and coming scene.
In the true spirit of “DIY”, this band has done everything from press-photos to homepages themselves. And if that wasn’t enough, the band has meanwhile worked on a “follow up” to their debut. Still untitled, the follow up is set to be released sometime in the second half of 2012. The musical goals have always been big and ambitious, and the single song itself has constantly been a point of focus, that has driven this extremely hardworking band forward.
The motto "...there is no such thing as luck, only hard work...", has been the bands "mantra" since the very beginning. The mix of the American sounding hard rock and modern "electro-sound" defines the strong and well composed rock hymns of this band. If you haven’t already; put on “Sleep of Reason”, crank up the volume, close your eyes and let yourself fall back into the world of “Silence of September”… Niko - Lead vocals, guitars, keys and programming Mirza - Guitars, backing vocals and live sampling Kim - Drums, backing vocals and live sampling Frederik - Bass and backing vocals Read more on Last.fm.
