Echosilence evolved from Estonian death metal band Decease, the name change coming about as they decided to move away from that style in a more melodic prog metal and fusion direction.

The music here is post rock mixed with prog metal, and a little jazz fusion. It is entirely instrumental, despite the fact that they had a female vocalist at the time, according to the band's website. This gives the music a rather one dimensional sound based around the guitars, notwithstanding the diversity of styles which influence the band.

The riffing is strongly reminiscent of DREAM THEATER although the solo guitar breaks tend to be rather less note filled. There are also similarities with the music of EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY with the duel guitar themes, and the over dominant drums.

The demo's included here sound pretty much complete in terms of production. They do however clearly lack the focus of a vocal melody or even a keyboards interlude, anything to break the monotony.

It is difficult to see why the band continue to offer this EP in full on their official website. Is clearly does not represent where that are now, having been recorded 9 years previously. It was indeed, time to move on.
