Wicked Dynamic Metal out of Miami, Florida.
As anyone who has ever known me, or even still does know me remotely well, I have been and still continue to be a musical connoisseur of many and almost all forms and genres of music, especially of the metal, and death metal genres. Every once in a great while I come across a band, & a record, that really just stands out and blows me away with the music, and the performance, & if I am lucky enough to see it first hand, their stage presence and energy.
Silenmara are that once in a while band for me. I myself was recently introduced to them through a very dear mutual friend & musical brother of mine. Now when a majority of people think about Miami Florida they don’t typically or usually think about metal or death metal. All I can say is that you had better change your mindset immediately. Metal is alive and well in South FL and it is going to come out swinging hard and fast! The guys in Silenmara mean business on so many levels it is nothing short of amazing.
This record, their first, “Collection of Conscience” is a true Metal album, full of Melodic, Symphonic, and Dynamic sounds and simply (to me) is truly a Sonic work of art. What can I tell you about this album; well first off, each time I listen to it I discover something new in the mix/sound I did not hear before. There are so many elements contained within this album mixed and blended so well that it creates a dynamic range of sound that rivals some of the very earliest works of this particular genre. Everything from the haunting vocals of Reggie Miller, through the Dynamic Symphonic Sounds of Jason Hidalgo-gato, Paul Casas, to the low end brutality of Adrian Perez, & Moises Rodriquez all provide for some of the most Symphonic Wicked metal to ever come out of South FL that I myself have ever heard so far.
What can I tell you about their live performance(s), they are nothing short of amazing! These guys deliver 110% every time they are on stage. Driving 4 hours from Miami, FL. recently to play for Brand New fans in the Tampa, FL area. I had the distinct honor of meeting these individuals and talking to them first hand and for the energy they deliver on stage, they are as humble as I think even myself being from the south could be. These gentlemen care about two things their music & their fans. And what I can tell you is this. If this record is any indication of what is to come, then they are set to take the METAL music community by storm. You do not want to miss them as they set out on tour.
