4 stars The band started as a Genesis clone more or less, but soon they have found their unique niche regarding the widespread progressive rock realm. On the one hand SUBMARINE SILENCE constants are David Cremoni (guitars) and keyboarder Cristiano Roversi, both also known for operating with the band Moongarden, yet on a hiatus probably. Furthermore, with Guillermo Gonzalez there is a rather prominent singer aboard, Not for the first time really, the predecessor album from 2016 already sees him participating. And that would be the band's core. What comes in addition to this are bass player Alberto Zanetti and drummer Valerio Michetti, plus two female/male singers, just caring for some additional background vocal duties.

Distributed via the acclaimed label Ma.Ra.Cash Records 'Did Swan's Ever See God?' shines with strong symphonic traces. Roversi does not skimp on Mellotron and Hammond. The great plus goes to the sophisticated and overly accessible compositions offered during around 45 minutes playing time. Well, I'm not willing to hightlight any specific song in this case. The album simply sounds rounded, coherent all the way through. The entertainment factor is in full blow here. Also a quality feature, I guess approximately half of all the prog album covers must have been painted by Ed Unitsky. This is very recommended, especially dedicated to the typical retro tinged symphonic prog lover who also prefers to hear music from bands like the early Genesis, The Watch, Karmakanic, The Flower Kings aso.
