4 stars Silent Edge is a progressive/power metal band from Holland formed around excellent keybordist Minggus Gaspersz and guitar player Emo Suripatty in late '90's. They release so far a single album in 2003 named The Eyes of the Shadow at DVS records. Their music can be describet something between progressive metal a la Symphony X or Royal Hunt with a good doze of power metal elements and neoclassical aproach a la Malmsteen.The result is fantstic, one of the best albums released in this filed, because the ideas, the musicianship, everything is top notch. Long pieces, with complex arrangements,twisted and tempo changes all the time, killer keybords elements combined in an unique manner with the rest of the instruments, makes from this album a real treasure. What I like aswell besides instrumental passages is the voice of Willem Verwoert, very strong vocalist who knew how to handle his vocal abilities to create something truly solid. His range is very powerfull who fits like gloves with the music.Every piece is a total winner, not a single weak moment here. The best tracks are Through Different Eyes, For Ancient Times, with fabulous keybords parts and killer druming and guitar elements.So aavery solid release who desearve a far wider recogniton from progressive metal lovers. Recommended for sure, I was very pleasent surprise by this almost unknown band. 4 stars without hesitation.
