4 stars Top notch album

Violent Silence is five piece band from Sweden with 2 albums released so far. The second release from 2005 named Kinetic is true gem in prog filed. Quite original in many parts, this band sounds fresh and inventive most of the time. I'm not aware of their first album, but this one is really great from start to finish. This is the type of prog without guitar and instead the keyboards has an important role here, but don't expect something a la ELP, no, this is diffrent and is very good and original. The music is powerfull, intresting and has plenty of memorable passages, specially in pieces like Torrential Rains or Kinetic, very strong musicianship. What is intresting on this release is that they incorporated in the eclectic sound some very strong electronic keyboards, that goes very well here in this context. Quiet Stalker is a 18 min long tune with some fantstic instrumental passages, nice moods and twists here, the 2 keybordist done a very nice job, really great. Kinetic is one of the albums that needs a far better recognition world wide because they worth it big time. Original and inventive are the words to discribe this little album very unknown. Well done guys. 4 stars easy and recommended.
