3 stars This is the second effort from Swedish five piece formation Vilent Silence. I am not familiar with their fist one but listening to Kinetic I have to say that they are an interesting new progrock band. Their music often sounds like an encounter of electronic music (keyboards), symphonic rock (structure of the songs) and progressive metal (dynamic and powerful rhythm-section). The two keyboard players are omnipresent, they colour the compositions lush and tasteful with modern and varied sounds. Highlight is the long track Quiet Stalker (at about 18 minutes) featuring many shifting moods and spectacular keyboard sounds. Only the vocals sometimes sound a bit dull. To me Violent Silence is a fresh and promising band, perhaps the addition of a guitarplayer will give the music more variety, some tracks tend to sound a bit similar. But in general this CD has lots of strong musical ideas.
