Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Swedish band VIOLENT SILENCE have been a going entity since the late 1990's, and since they released their first studio album in 2003 a total of four albums have been issued by the band. "Twilight Furies" is their most recent production, and was released through local Swedish label Open Mind Records in the late fall season of 2020.

The very best parts of "Twilight Furies" are amazing, fantastic and brilliant. The manner in which multiple keyboards with and without rhythm functions combines with bass, drums and percussion can at times be breathtaking, and while at times starkly different in scope and approach the particular retro-oriented sound explored on this album makes me think of recent US symphonic progressive rock band The Psychedelic Ensemble, for those who are aware of that project. While the vocals are a clear weak point of this production, those who know, love and treasure retro-oriented progressive rock with keyboards as the main instrument and clear connections to symphonic progressive rock as a specific style orientation will find a lot to cherish on "Twilight Furies". And if you in addition love strong rhythms work in general and percussion in particular, I do suspect that you'll find this album to be well worth your time.
